Bruce Sanguin Quotes

Three Quotes by: Bruce Sanguin of United Church of Canada

We believe that along with the rest of life, we need to creatively adapt to changing life conditions, or suffer the evolutionary consequences. This creative process of adaptation and innovation is driven by Spirit. Everything is involved in a sacred, evolutionary process, including the Christian faith. If we stand still for too long we’ll be a victim of the “blessed unrest” that is coursing through the universe, rather than stewards of this unrest. Revelation is ongoing, not confined to any book or single person, or to 2000 years ago. We take the Bible seriously, not literally, and we don’t think that religion is about private salvation.

I’m passionate about raising public awareness that there is a form of Christianity beyond the belief-based, biblical literalism that is associated with traditional “church”.

The church is a part of this evolving universe, or it should be. If not it’s resisting a very powerful cosmic dynamic - the evolutionary impulse. In other words, Biblical literalists have to work really, really hard to maintain their position, because it goes against the very nature of reality as Spirit has seen fit to make it.
