Our goal as religious people must be to enable all of existence to thrive and flourish. Through a theology of panentheism, we elevate the significance of the non-divine in the world, because to some degree it, too, is divine.
We can only bring each other closer with love, wisdom, and compassion. There is no room to alienate others based upon their theological understandings, communal commitments, or ritual practices. In the new paradigm, we evolve beyond mere tolerance into deeper respect, learning, and collaboration.
