*The word “God” can be a hot-button for many Unitarian Universalists. But maverick retired Episcopal bishop John Shelby Spong, whose best known book is “Why Christianity Must Change or Die,” gives us some new ways of looking at the concept. He says, “I can tell no one who God is or what God is. Neither can anyone else – from the Pope to Pat Robertson to the Dalai Lama. That is simply an aspect of human pretending.” We will explore the ideas of this courageous and far-sighted man as expressed by him, and by others, in speech and in song.
