Embracing Evolution

A caring family and friends have taught me that love is life's greatest gift. Those who have shared this wonder with me are Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Unitarian Universalists, agnostics, and atheists, as well as Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox Christians. Thanks to you all! 

I am Christian because I "live and move and have my being" (Acts 17:28) within the stories of Christian scripture, as I strive with others "to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God." (Micah 6:8) 

I am a secular Christian, because I believe all human knowledge is limited and must be tested by our experience and reasoning. I support a democratic rather than a religious government, because history reveals that secular governments are more likely to protect our freedom to pursue the truth through open debate and the rule of law.

I believe all we know and are—including our consciousness, our freedom, and our morality—comes from the Way the cosmos is evolving. I look to scripture, science, literature, history, and religious experience for insight into this wondrous unfolding. © Robert Traer 2016
