Reflection's Alfie Question: How Many Gods?

She doesn't allow comments, so....
Question: "In a room of 300 Unitarian Universalists, such as we are today , how many gods are in this room?"

One. Light comes in many and varied forms, so that we may see according to our needs, predispositions, and cultural conditioning. The problem comes when we think that the shape of our God needs to be the shape of everyone else's God.
But she's lobbing a slow pitch to the faithful here. Ratzinger beat her to the punch anyways.

Forget counting Gods. We'll find that answer for certain. It's the Demons we fight. They're real, abundent, and for certain.

Then perhaps you should be asking:

"In a room of 300 Unitarian Universalists, such as we are today , how many demons are in this room?"

good question...

I'd say we all have a few, UU and non-UU alike.
