There is a ferment in the world’s religions. We have all heard about conservative and fundamentalist religion. But we hear much less about religion that is deeply spiritual and nondogmatic, that builds empathic communities and inspires people to activism to create a caring, democratic, egalitarian, and environmentally sane society.
