The Call of the Spirit - By John B. Cobb, Jr., Bruce G. Epperly, ual S. Nancarrow



"To work with God is to exercise the metaphysical freedom God gives us moment by moment as fully as we can and as much in accordance with God’s call as possible. God calls us to open ourselves to ways of being and doing that go beyond what we have thought or done in the past."

~John B. Cobb, Jr.

John B. Cobb, Jr. is emeritus professor, Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University; co-founder and co-director of the Center for Process Studies. Cobb is the author of numerous books and articles, including Christ in a Pluralistic Age, and most recently, Postmodernism and Public Policy.

"Process spirituality is grounded in a metaphysical vision that affirms the dynamic interrelatedness of life, the omnipresence of God, and the ubiquitous reality of divine inspiration."

~Bruce G. Epperly

Bruce G. Epperly is director of the Alliance for the Renewal of Ministry, Continuing Education, and associate professor of practical theology at Lancaster Theological Seminary. His most recent book is Finding Angels in Boulders: An Interfaith Discussion of Dying and Death.
"We often think of spirituality as something practiced in solitude. Process thought stresses that nothing happens in a vacuum, therefore, a process spirituality must take account of the social dimension of spiritual practice, including ritual, ceremony, and liturgy as spiritual paths."

~Paul S. Nancarrow

Paul S. Nancarrow is rector of St. George’s Episcopal Church in St. Louis Park, MN, and Canon Theologian for the Diocese of Minnesota.
