Perhaps the church as we know it is being replaced and replaced because God is actually being replaced… In this episode, part 4a of the RePlacing Church series, I take a look at what I call “Carl Sagan's Psalm,” interact with Diana Butler Bass' excellent recent book Grounded, and listen to the wisdom of folks like St. Thomas Aquinas, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Supreme Leader Snoke, as I explore what is leading to the grounding movements happening in the church, namely, the shift from a conventional, vertical understanding of God to a more horizontal, grounded understanding of God.
