Many spiritual traditions seem to want us to transcend our bodies and feelings, the material world and the other living creatures in it. Even science seems at times to extol reason and ideas over the physical world, which is seen as a blind and purposeless mechanism following unthinking mathematical laws. However,other traditions, like Unitarianism, see value in the natural world and give humanity a key role in harmonizing and fulfilling the cosmos, rather than escaping from it. Some scientists are even beginning to consider ideas such as the “Gaia Hypothesis” and the “Anthropic Principle” which suggest that there may be a life-friendly purpose behind our evolving Universe! Dr Mike Rutter leads the service starting at 10.30am All welcome
