Non-Theistic Liturgy Resources

As finite as we humans are, it may be arrogant to assume that we can contemplate the Infinite adequately enough to name it and speak truths about it. However, we humans have always tried to do just that. We have created religions and devoted our lives (and sacrificed the lives of others) to defending our concept of God and to do God’s will. Some have ceased to trust in an omnipotent, omniscient, transcendent, anthropomorphic deity (a theistic conception) and are seeking expressions to reflect their life experiences of the Divine Mystery. Others remain committed to monotheism, but challenge what they consider to be immaturity in its practice. All such persons are welcomed into the circle of seekers who are working to uncover and create non-theistic (or post-theistic) resources for worship and reflection.

We welcome suggestions and offerings of materials (liturgical and educational resources) for the collection that we are building so that we can offer these back to our human community. Send submissions to
