Thinking Aloud Allowed so good we named it twice....
Given that Sunday is Trinity Sunday the theme of our time together will be:
The nature of God, the dogma of the Church and the difficulty of language.
To aid us in our thinking we will consider the following version of a creed and version of the Lord’s prayer that are Don MacGregor’s attempts to find a form of words he feels comfortable with.
- Start Date:
- Sunday 12th June 2022
- Start Time:
- Online Zoom

Creed of consciousness:
I believe in the God of Creative purpose, the compassionate consciousness in which we live and move and have our being. Mother and Father of us all, we are held in being by God, who dwells in us and all creation, and from whom we emanate and emerge.
I believe Jesus the Christ was a son of God, a fully human being who reached the depths of God-consciousness to become fully divine, and forged a path for the rest of humanity, through the way of self-emptying and compassion.
I believe in the Spirit of God, the divine energy working in the world to bring all things to fullness and restoration.
I believe in the sacred nature of the Earth and every human being, and that the spiritual journey is to be transformed by love, letting go of the selfish nature, and entering into the compassionate consciousness that is God.
A version of the Lord’s prayer:
O Breath of Life, who flows in all creation,
May the light of your presence fill the universe,
Your way of being come, your desire done, in this and all realms of existence.
Bring forth the nourishment we need for this day.
Forgive the failures that bind us, as we let go of our hold on other’s failures.
And let us not be satisfied with the surface of life,
but deliver us from wrong paths.
For you are abundant life, creative unity and glorious harmony,
through all time and beyond.
