I BELIEVE IN A GOD WHO IS GROWING: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO PROCESS THEOLOGY
What if God is less person than process? What if God is growing and changing as the universe grows and changes? What if God needs us as much as we need God? What if nothing exists except actions? Welcome to the mind-bending world of Process Theology. In this lecture, Pastor and professor John Mabry leads us through the history of this theology in the West, focusing on the insights of its major trailblazers and visionaries. Along the way we’ll discover that reality is far weirder than we think it is, and solve some major theological puzzles along the way.
The Rev. John R. Mabry is a United Church of Christ pastor currently serving Grace North Church in Berkeley and Our Redeemer Lutheran in Oakland. He is the director of the Interfaith Spiritual Direction Certificate Program at the Chaplaincy Institute in Berkeley, and also teaches world religions and spiritual guidance at a number of Bay Area schools. He lives with his wife and dogs in Oakland and sings for the progressive rock band Mind Furniture.
