Darwin and Divinity – Bruce Sanguin

bruce sanguinEvolutionary Christian Bruce Sanguin is the minister at the Canadian Memorial United Church in Vancouver. There are a few preachers that I regularly read, listen to, or watch on Monday mornings and Bruce is one of my favourites. His preaching has influenced my own. While on sabbatical, I had the pleasure of worshiping at the Canadian Memorial United Church and throughly enjoyed experiencing this community that via the internet has been a part of my own development.

Bruce has also written several books that continue to inspire my own worship planning. Two of his books are of particular value to any pastor who seeks to plan worship without slipping into the trap of words that re-inscribe old theological patterns:  Darwin, Divinity and the Dance of the Cosmos: An Ecological Christianity and If Darwin Prayed: Prayers for Evolutionary Mystics. 

This video in which Bruce is interviewed by fellow evolutionary Andrew Cohen will wet your appetite for Bruce’s work while giving you an interesting look into evolutionary mysticism.  (more about Andrew Cohen coming soon) Enjoy!
