Gretta Vosper Quotes

Two Quotes by: Gretta Vosper of West Hill United Church, Toronto, Canada

When I have the opportunity to engage the public in conversations about the evolution of religion or the necessity for religions to move beyond their role as mediators of a narrative that includes a supernatural component, I am often challenged by those who argue that the God I say we need to move away from doesn't exist. The argument is that we no longer believe in a male God who lives in the sky and intervenes in human affairs to offer us a way to follow, to reward us for good behaviour, or to chastise us and discipline us for running off the divinely ordained rails.

Please take a moment to learn about the Progressive Christian Congregational Leadership Initiative that I am facilitating. You'll find information on it below. A "next step" in the work of shifting the worship and practice of Canadian mainline Christianity from its primary focus on traditional Christian doctrine and story to one celebrating the non-exclusive principles of compassionate living and right relationship with self, others, and the planet, it will be an important pilot project.
