I’ve got an idea – let’s have a nice, peaceful conversation about the nature of God. We’ll not follow any agenda, and we’ll involve the whole world. We can keep it friendly, right? I wonder how long it will be before I start getting death threats……
But seriously, folks – I believe that this is a conversation that needs to happen. The rise of religious fundamentalism is just one of the many things that is making this a really crazy time, and I’m feeling confident that there are a lot of folks out there who have had enough crazy already.
And that is the genesis of the Dreamer project. We have a character named Robert who is about to lead us on a quest to explore the nature of God. The idea is for viewers to write in comments that can become dialog for the various actors in the story. Hopefully, the fact that everyone will be aiming their remarks at imaginary characters will keep this little experiment civil, and hopefully we can make this into something that is both meaningful and good. That’s the idea, anyway – a nice peaceful conversation. What will happen here is a more detailed (and hopefully less dramatic) discussion of some of the thorny theological issues involved in the story.
