Homo Spiritus, Rev. Kent Matthies

We humans call ourselves homo sapien, which means wise or knowing man. This is good and important. However, there is so much we do not know. It is also true that focusing on our knowledge has not got us out of war, poverty and destroying the planet. Perhaps we should call ourselves homo spiritus, which would refer to mind, intelligence, but also soul and spirit. This could help us prioritize our fullest selves.  This could help us connect to our ancestors, and our future through the power of now.
