Pastor Tom Sorenson, a pastor at Monroe Congregational United Church of Christ in Monroe Washington, will be discussing his new book: "Liberating Christianity: Overcoming Obstacles to Faith in the New Millennium." Pastor Sorenson's book offers a different understanding of faith. It begins with a discussion of the universal human experience of the spiritual dimension of reality. It then discusses symbol and myth as the necessary language for communicating that experience. Pastor Sorenson goes on to explain that all human experience is necessarily subjective and that religious truth is thus also necessarily subjective. Therefore, he states, religous truth is relative, not universal and absolute. He then closes with a provacative section that replaces the dominant social conservatism of popular Christianity with Jesus's teachings of nonviolence, economic justice and radical inclusivity. This program originally aired on 3/23/09.  Contact Information - http://monroeucc.org, pastor@monroeucc.org,  or (360) 794-7601.
