A number of congregants and friends have asked, "What's with this UC minister who claims not be believe in God?" A good question and there are a good number of other questions that come out of it, one being, "How widespread is this phenomenon?" One of my colleagues, the Rev. Dr. Richard Bott, decided to look into that particular dimension of the issue and has today posted some learnings. The good news is that it seems that the vast number of my colleagues believe in God. The sad news is that I have to report that.
