Dwight (aka Religious Liberal) embarks on some extended theological analysis of the anti-liberal Episopalian Robert J. Sanders and offers a "religious naturalist" middle way between orthodox theology and Sanders's nemesis, ecstatic theology. I don't have much to add, but I'm happy to see that "moral imagination" is part of Dwight's theological vocabulary:
In a religious naturalist view, ethics doesn't start with principles nor commands, but in the ability to survey the possibilities in a given situation and take the requiste course of action..To develop a moral imagination which can see such possibilities requires conversation, engaging the other to deepen and widen one's meaningful appreciative understanding of the world.
