A vocabulary of reverence.
The closest I've come to addressing this question is a bit of a hedge, I'm afraid, since my essay "Authority in the spirit" focuses on a liberal doctrine of the church rather than any doctrine about ultimate reality. (Plus, it's long!) But you might also find something of value in a series of comments I made in a discussion last summer of John Hayward's book Through the Rose Window: Art, Myth, and the Religious Imagination. Click here, here, here, and here for my thoughts on whether Unitarian Universalism is a "new religion" and what its "revelation" might be.
My own vocabulary of reverence, meanwhile, pops up from time to time in hymn writing. (Talk about niche blogging!)
