First UU Events
Rev. David Carter will present "The Divine Mother." Divine Mother explores alternate theologies that offer divergent versions of the Source, theologies that elaborate on femininity as divine, theologies that portray the eternal Godhead as simultaneously, inextricably, joyfully Female and Male.
Some of the problems inherent in theologies that omit any reference to feminine divinity were recently parodied in a televised monologue by comedian Louis C. K.: “If there is a God, I don’t know if it’s the one in the Bible, ’cause that’s a weird story… He’s our father and we’re His children. That’s it. “Our father, who art in Heaven.” Where’s our mother? What happened to our mom? What did He do to our mom? Something happened... and I want the story. Well, how can we not have a mother?! At least, maybe, God’s divorced. Maybe he has an ex-wife… Maybe that’s what’s going on. Maybe your life is your… weekend with Dad, that’s what life is… and then when you die, you go to mom’s house…”
