Episode #8 features an interview with Bob Keating. Bob grew up in the Congregational church amidst a loving and caring community that he fondly recalls. However, the stories of God commanding Abraham to sacrifice his son and Jesus dying to atone for our sins created an undercurrent to a theology of a loving God. Both stories bothered Bob, with effects deeper than he would recognize for years.A good friend's invitation led Bob and Hilary, his wife, to a UU church, where he found the theology consistent with his ethical underpinnings, the community equally warm and caring as his Congregational church.Contemplating the timeless religious questions, Bob concludes that the answers are unknowable. Instead, his focus has been plumbing the UU Principles, which he considers the glue binding the diversity within our congregations. The principles provide a unifying vision for a Buddhist, Christian, and Pagan to sit in the same pew and form a seemingly unlikely religious community.For more information about the podcast, please visit our web site: http://bespiritual.info
