2022 Retreat: Setting God Free: Moving Beyond the Caricature We’ve Created in Our Own Image

This event took place March 21 - 23. Lecture series videos are available in the Retreat Video Archives on this page.

Imagine a court case in which Yahweh is put on trial for crimes against humanity. The very books that have immortalized this caricature of God are loaded with evidence that He and His primary accomplice Moses could end up in the slammer for all of their treacherous acts.

Only when we break down systems long in place can we begin to understand how we know what we know about anything, much less the mysterious creator figure many of us call God. Whatever name we use to describe the divine reality we seek, we must begin by separating the god we have constructed in our own image and likeness from the God in whose image and likeness we were created. And by dismantling the false gods which our species has held hostage for millennia, I hope to set God free. This was my objective in writing this book and my hope for our retreat.

The book is available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
