I identify myself strongly as a disciple of Whitehead. I think he was often right on points where even many of his followers reject him. On some points where I earlier rejected his views, I have come to realize that he was wiser than I. I work to understand and justify his ideas even when his fellow scientists declare that he was wrong. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that Whitehead made mistakes. A friend of mine found a strictly mathematical mistake -- I think it was in his Universal Algebra.

The Christmas narratives present us with a set of what process theologians describe as provocative propositions. Alfred North Whitehead asserts that “it is more important that a proposition be interesting than true.” He adds that “the importance of truth is that it adds to the interest.” This is certainly true of the Christmas stories.

Our "Spooky Connectedness," or Why I Love Catherine Keller

jeanynePeople who write about process theology can be eloquent and inspiring, or intellectual and demanding, but for sheer poetic beauty no one surpasses Catherine Keller. Catherine writes as a theologian, yes, but also as someone who could as easily have gotten an MFA in writing as an MDiv and PhD in theology.
