In an article in United Church News, Obama stated that the teachings of the UCC (United Church of Christ), of which he is a member (Trinity United Church of Christ), are “foundation stones for his political work.” Just what are those “teachings” comprised of? On Trinity’s website, on the Yoga page, the following statement is highlighted:
Within each [of]us is the seed of Divinity. Each Soul is divine. I bow to the divinity in us all!
That is the spirituality of Thomas Merton!
