On Quaker Universalist Voice, the blog of the Quaker Universalist Fellowship, I have published a new post, “Do humanism and universalism differ?

Here is an excerpt:

This I know experimentally” does not refer to knowledge gained from replicable outer-world demonstration. It refers, rather, to a sure inward conviction, grounded in personal experience, which each person must become open to herself, though it can be pointed to and shared with others through the languages of art and religion.

Marsden warns us of the loss of the “dimension of meaning” when we limit what we believe we can know to the rationality of the ideologically secular.

Please visit QUV, read the post, and offer your comments.
