The First Electronic Church of America
We call it "First" because this is a first call to all like-minded persons of good will who recognize that now, for the first time, the human race is beginning to "get it." Get what? Since the beginning of the age of discovery, we've come to a gradual, growing understanding that the world was one, and that men and women of every race and nation were united -- by reason of all the things they had in common: same kind of bodies, same kind of blood, same kind of hearts, same kinds of feelings. Now, scientists and philosophers have pushed the envelope of understanding. They're saying we are one because we're all linked together electronically.
We call it "Electronic" because electrons seem to be the building blocks of the whole universe -- not only the building blocks that make up our physical bodies, but the means we use to transmit what we've always believed to transcend the physical: our thoughts. If there's a link between physics and metaphysics, it is here, in the electronic core of everything in the universe.
We call it a "Church" because we are now talking about linking the human race together (which is what the word "religion" means in its root sense) into a community of loving persons. FECHA, of course, is not intended to replace other ties -- to families, tribes, towns, cities, nations, to national and supra-national religions. FECHA is religion with a small-r, something everyone can belong to. By becoming a member of FECHA, you do not become any less a Christian, any less Moslem, any less of a Buddhist or a Hindu or a Jew.
As for calling it "of America," FECHA originated in the overlap between North and Latin America, but among our saints and heroes you'll find Russians and Serbians, Germans and Scots, French and British, Argentinians and Texans. Today, on the Internet, FECHA is global.
