Welcome to Process Musings for the curious, the creative, and the open-hearted. We are two bloggers from the world of process thought, inspired by the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead. We believe in a God of love and beauty — “the poet of the world” — who is tenderly interrelated with all creation. We also believe in an interconnected universe that is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects.
In our process approach to life, we appreciate all good-hearted souls around the world who are committed to the flourishing of life: theists, non-theists, and the many who are somewhere in between. And we believe that no religious or cultural tradition has all the truth, but that all have wisdom to offer the world. We highlight spiritual paths and practices that promote well-being for the common good and care for the planet.
By profession, one of us is a progressive Protestant minister (Patricia), the other, a professor of religion (Jay). Both of us have been active in the interfaith community for many years and have written on a variety of topics related to spirituality, process theology, music, art, beauty, multi-faith spirituality, justice, pop culture, politics, science, and ecology. We invite you to peruse our website, Jesus, Jazz, and Buddhism: Process Philosophy and Theology for a More Hospitable World.
Because we find the heart of spiritual wisdom in the nooks and crannies of everyday life, we feel a special kinship with the wisdom, width, and gentleness of Spirituality and Practice. So we are glad to bring you this multi-faith blog featuring articles, essays, stories, videos, and poetry which invite you to discover fresh possibilities for wholeness, creativity, and joy — or what we like to call in the process world, “creative transformation.” We invite you to utilize our blog posts as a companion in your spiritual practice and for sharing with your friends and faith community.
