NTF George Amoss on Worship, Nontheism and Convergence

August 23, 2009 at 4:15 pm (Prodigal Valentine)

Still, I understand your reaction: you are, after all, a believer in a personal God, and my approach may feel like an insult to the belief system in which you are deeply and very personally invested. I do not intend to offend, only to offer the results of a lifetime of reflection, study, and religious practice, so I can only ask believers to meet me halfway — to try not to take offense, for their own sake and for the sake of the love to which we are all committed — if they wish to meet me at all.

The above is quoted from the comments section on George’s post Worship, Nontheism and Convergence. I have read a lot of his earlier articles, at the QUF, and Quaker Quest. I look forward to following this prominent Non-Theist Friend’s blog. But do check out the give-and-take in the comments section on the post I’ve linked to. Is there hope for amicable discussion between theists and non-theists yet? Based on this, at least, there still may be.
