Bishop John Spong describes a heathen view of the afterlife?
« on: September 19, 2012, 01:38:43 pm »
Here is Bishop John Spong describing his take on the afterlife. To me, I was struck that this was a pretty heathen way of thinking i.e. no one knows what comes next – if anything comes next – and the key is how we live now and our relationships with those around us. We also “touch the divine” best through living a full life and we best honour the dead that way too. It’s not all about prayer, mediation and the “next life”, but living a full life now. The whole interview is well worth a listen: http://youtu.be/XOcjxjP1kiY?t=14m6s

Bishop Spong is unique. I've read many of his books and wish more religious people (of all religions) were as open-minded as he is.
