The following announcement is of special interest to me. A few years ago Carter Phipps did a telephone interview with me in preparation for an article he was writing for the spiritual magazine for which he worked. In the course of the interview, I discovered that he had grown up in Oklahoma, just as I had. I then found out that he had attended the University of Oklahoma as an undergraduate, and so had I. I had gone on to take a PHD in English there, and he mentioned that his mother had also done graduate work in the English department, and at the same time I was there. And, indeed I remembered her well, though I did not know her closely.
Since that time I have had a special interest in Carter Phillips, who wrote about this blog all those years ago as an example of how the internet could be used for spiritual purposes, a topic quite new at the time.

“Evolutionaries: Who, Why, How and You"
Sunday, July 1st, 2012
at 10:00am Pacific; 1:00pm Eastern; UTC/GMT-7
Join us this Sunday, July 1st at 10am PST for what is sure to be an inspiring dialog with award-winning journalist Carter Phipps. We’ve all heard about fossils and fruit flies, Darwin and Dawkins. But as Carter eloquently argues in his new book, “EVOLUTIONARIES: Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science’s Greatest Idea”, the idea of evolution is much more profound and far-reaching.
Today, evolution embraces everything—from economics to psychology, from politics to religion, from ecology to technology. So is evolution just the latest buzzword, or does all this point to a deeper, more complex truth? Carter suggests that evolution signifies the emergence of nothing less than a new worldview—one that honors science, reframes culture, and radically updates spirituality.
I've written a blog entry summarizing some of what we will discuss on the call. You can read that HERE. I invite you to take a look!
To our evolution,
