[NOTE:  This program has been rescheduled for next Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012. I promise a groundbreaking paradigm in the upcoming wedding of Christianity and Humanism. It is thus better to push back the wedding than to risk the viability and longevity of the marriage.]

I have been all around the world spiritually and have settled on exactly what works for me. Though I consider all religions to be based upon myth -- like the late Joseph Campbell -- all myth have elements of both fact and fiction. Since adulthood, when my search for god started in earnest, I have taken more of a metaphoric view of the bible. This episode will illucinate just why -- when the obvious metaphors in the narrative called the Bible are given hierarchy over literal understanding -- the Humanism within becomes quite obvious.

I am writing an introduction to The Christian Humanism CommUNITY Church of Love, and will use it as a supplement to the Bible to extract the Humanism, explain why the adsurd should be ignored, and proceed to get the lessons from the most worthy passages/fables that enhance our humanity. Mary Baker Eddy also took this approach when she wrote a text that she used to interpret the Bible for the Christian Scientist Chrch. Within a week I should have about a 50 page doc that i will upload for those interested in reading it before the show. That's why I'm scheduling it 13 days out. It's gonna be a gas!!!
