See Dowd's REVEREND REALITY youtube channel for most recent sermons. In 2013, Rev. Michael Dowd began delivering sermons and other talks in churches in which he urged his audiences to joyfully move their traditions forward, embracing Religion 3.0 -- a time when "scripture" would be expanded to include the "Evidential Reformation." Henceforth, the findings of science (especially climate change) would provide crucial guidance for living "in right relationship to Reality" and would be preached from the pulpit as "God's evidential revelation." Dowd's 6-part personal credo: (1) Reality is my God, (2) Evidence is my scripture, (3) Big History is my creation story, (4) Ecology is my theology, (5) Integrity is my salvation, (6) Ensuring a just and healthy future is my mission.
A foreboding sense of climate chaos, societal collapse, and ecological "doom" is now widespread. Acknowledging our predicament and working through the stages of grief takes one only to the midpoint: acceptance. What lies beyond? Michael Dowd (with occasional co-hosts) invites guests to share their personal journeys along this trajectory and especially the gifts they have found on the other side of the post-doom doorway.
