How do we deal with the unknown? I went to the Universalist church my daughter attends and was again impressed by how a church skirts the trappings of specific religions while trying to find one of their own. It was pretty subtle. Christian hymns surrounded by winter solstice language, etc. No real answers but assurances in spiritual goodness. I know I don't want the security of a cult but why even the lose wrappings of spirituality? Do we need this loose connection to spiritual truth to fend off the vicissitudes of life's ambiguity? Oh, well, these two women pastors are pretty hip and offer an intellectual substrate that makes for a worthwhile experience.
