Every local community needs to be ecologically wise--now and forever. After we clean up our own communities, let us help our neighbors. Local and regional communities are related in an infinite number of ways--whether they realize it or not. How do we make people realize that we are all interrelated and interconnected in infinite ways? It is through love.

We have to be open, honest, and transparent--personally, locally, nationally, and internationally. It is an openness and a longing to find and share deeper and deeper truths about everything.

To heal our communities, we need to be ecologically wise and express true spirituality, which is the universal love for humanity, the Earth, and the divine ground of being. Certainly a loving God would have both a male and a female aspect. The divine ground at the core of our being is a nondual Source of indescribable love, joy, and bliss. A growing number of people are believing that there is no male God who is separate and distinct from the universe that he has created: that would be theism.

On a related note, I recommend this 7-minute video in which John Shelby Spong--author of the books Why Christianity Must Change or Die and Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism--speaks eloquently on the subject of "What is God?" You can also explore Liberation Theology and this article on Process Theology.
