What, if anything, do the following excerpts from a NYT opinion add to the issue of a denomination for a web church: opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com
There are three great human needs religions typically claim to satisfy: love, understanding, and knowledge.
A religion offers a community in which we are loved by others and in turn learn to love them.
Religious understanding offers a way of making sense of the world as a whole and our lives in particular.
Religious knowledge offers an account of supernatural realities that, if true, shows the operation of a benevolent power in the universe.
Knowledge, if it exists, adds a major dimension to religious commitment. But love and understanding, even without knowledge, are tremendous gifts.
