The Divine Dance Book Group

What - or who? - is God? An angry moral scorekeeper? A supernatural Santa for those who do what’s right? A fiction? An irrelevance?

Explore this and other fundamental questions at Whirlow Spirituality Centre’s summer book group, reading The Divine Dance,by Richard Rohr (with Mike Morrell).

The writers think about God in a different way that can cut through conflicting perspectives. They speak of the Divine as a community; as a dance.
