If Horses, Cattle, or Lions Had Hands
Guest Speaker: Jerry Galazzo Worship Committee Chair: Thomas Paine UUF
“Be careful what we worship,” Emerson cautioned, “for what we are worshipping, we are becoming.” Throughout history, humans have worshiped anthropomorphic gods—that is, gods with human form and characteristics. But from classical antiquity to modern times such visions of god have been criticized as inadequate, disappointing, and even corrupting of the true religious impulse. Well, if not like humans, what is god like? What is “godlike?” Whether you personally believe in a god or not, who gets to answers such questions and how those questions get answered will, indeed, influence who we are becoming.
