UU Carnival # 7: Atheist prophets
In order to get more participation in the carnival, I’m asking for submisssions, on any topic at all. The only catch is that you need to be responding, in some way, to this quote from James Luther Adams:
“A good deal of so-called atheism is itself, from my point of view, theologically significant. It is the working of God in history, and judgement upon the pious. An authentic prophet can be a radical critic of spurious piety, of sham spirituality.”
From the submissions we receive, I’ll choose the best representatives of UU blogging, as usual, and we’ll have them online by Friday February 9th.
