With or Without God, with Gretta Vosper
20 Jun, 2008
Gretta Vosper, United Church Minister at West Hill United Church, Toronto, and founder and Chair of the Canadian Centre for Progressive Christianity
In Gretta Vosper's church there are no prayers, no miracles-performing magic Jesus and no omnipotent God at all. Vosper's book argues that the Christian church, in the form in which it exists today, has outlived its viability and either it sheds its no-longer credible myths, doctrines and dogmas, or it's toast. With a humanist worldview, Vosper proposes a radical change at the heart of faith. The new church she envisions will play a viable and transformative role in the shaping of a future society. What will save the church from certain demise, Vosper argues, is a new emphasis on just and compassionate living.
A catered receptions shall precede the talk at 6pm exclusively for Friends of the Centre.
