Robin R. Meyers with Dave Brown
Robin R. Meyers, the senior minister of Oklahoma City's Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ and Distinguished Professor of Social Justice Emeritus, Oklahoma City University, speaks this evening about some of the issues he discusses in his new book, Saving God from Religion: A Minister's Search for Faith in a Skeptical Age (Convergent Books). Saving God from Religion advocates moving from a theology of obedience to one of consequence, arguing that we need to stop seeing our actions as a means for pleasing a distant God and rediscover how God has empowered us to care for ourselves and the world.
"In this book of stories from four decades of ministry, Meyers powerfully captures what it means to believe in a God who's revealed not in creeds or morals but in the struggles and beauty of our ordinary lives. In unrelenting detail, he shows how all of creation is anointed with the presence of God, before leaving us with the hope that such anointing might also include us." --Richard Rohr.
Robin Meyers appears in conversation with Dave Brown, a Tacoma based pastor and member of the Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos.
