In "Spirit in Practice," a Tapestry of Faith program
Use your responses on Handout 1: Identifying a Mind Practice to engage with something that fascinates you. If you journal, take some time afterward to write about the experience and its relationship to your spirituality.
Talk with friends, family, housemates, and co-workers about the roles of reason and intellect in their spirituality. Do they use their reason regularly? Do they come from religious traditions that encourage reasoning and rationality? What you find might surprise you!
Read a good book on Unitarian Universalist theology to consider the ways in which intellect and reason inform our religious tradition. Such books include—but are certainly not limited to—
by William R. Murry,
Faith Without Certainty
by Paul Rasor,
Proverbs of Ashes
by Rita Nakashima Brock and Rebecca Ann Parker,
Blessing the World: What Can Save Us Now
by Rebecca Ann Parker, and
A Chosen Faith
by Forrest Church and John A. Buehrens.
