Gretta Vosper, A god called God, September 3-9

Gretta Vosper, a minister in the United Church of Canada, and pastor of West Hill United Church in Toronto, Ontario, is under fire from her denomination. Like many clergy, myself included, she doesn’t believe in a supernatural, interventionist god, or a god called God. She is an atheist. She calls herself that. She has been one for a long time. Now, officials want to review her credentials for ministry which is a first for this denomination.  She returns to Religion For Life to tell her story and report on the support her congregation is giving her.   Full disclosure: my letter of support for her.

  1. I read your letter in support of her. We do need more pastors who are not afraid to answer the “hard questions” of faith; and not just parrot time-worn tales. Christianity is at a crossroads: it can either take this route, grow with the times, and become relevant; or it can stay in its timewarp and will one day go the way of the ancient religions we see in museums and history books.

    Peace!
