About the Book

With over seven billion people on the planet and a lot more coming, learning to get along and live (love) together is essential to our survival. In a crisis our best nature surfaces—but we seem unable to sustain a sense of true community and remain in the heart of compassion for more than a few CNN weeks at a time. Understanding this, A Fresh Cup of Tolerance offers a revolutionary theory of Universalism—providing a pathway of hope for a troubled and divided world. In doing so, it addresses some of the foremost dilemmas of our time: • Environment • Globalization • Feminist and gender issues • Religious strife • Oppression • Poverty • War • Prejudice. Theologically, it systematically explores: • Our world’s multi-layered views of God • Our place in the world • Good, evil, sin and suffering • Ongoing revelation • Spirituality in the digital age • Love and community • Spiritual liberation. Nevertheless, A Fresh Cup of Tolerance is not just a pleasant, vanilla treatise on love; it’s a living, breathing, dynamic faith-in-action theology free from rigid words (scriptures), beliefs (dogma) or practices (rituals). Pulling from centuries of global religious tradition — including teachings from Native American, Asian, pagan and neo-pagan Goddess, Judeo-Christian, Islamic ways of life and more — this truly Universalist theology serves as a “call to action” for those individuals desperately seeking a world full of loving relationships and respect.
