Ancient Expressions of the Divine for Today’s World
The Chequamegon Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will explore how Abrahamic religions, which include Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, have no female divinity. This is unique among world religions. Yet there is an evocative and explicitly female symbol for God in their sacred texts: Wisdom Sophia. Gnostic writings also include references to Sophia as Eternal Silence, which preceded the creation of the earth and universe. Who is Spirit Sophia?
At this service, Stacy Craig will explore how historians and theologians are returning to ancient texts to understand our relationship with the divine and the earth as we seek to understand how to live into some of the pressing questions of our time. Additionally, folk harpist Glenn Walker Johnson will provide special music at this service. Please join us!
