What We Talk About When We Talk About God
delivered at the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos, 12 December 2010
(With apologies to Raymond Carver for the title.)
This sermon owes much to the work of sociologists Paul Froese and Christopher Bader, two of the primary researchers behind the Baylor Survey of Religion and their book, America’s Four Gods: What We Say about God–and What That Says about Us.
The notion of being stuck in the “apple system” comes from a brief comment by James Martin, SJ, in his book The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything: A Spirituality for Real Life (one of my favorite books this year).
