The specific purpose of RSRO is to attempt to show, through the acquisition of knowledge, that God is not exclusive to the realm of religion at the segregation of what is modernly defined as science, and that all paths lead to God. The corporation seeks to identify and categorize “Absolute Truths” that can be humanly defined and will ask of its members to engage in the “Great Conversation” on any level of understanding. As understanding develops, peace, harmony, and good citizenship that comes from such knowledge will result in a better society. RSRO’s founders believe that God can only be found in the “Absolute Truths” that are discovered along the learning journey. By the end of the journey and in whatever form that takes, the corporation’s founders hope that its members will take the leap of faith and will believe in God.
RSRO’s general membership is open to anyone willing to engage in the “Great Conversation.” The members are non-voting members and are not members of the Board of Trustees. They are members in faith only. No one must deny their current belief system (whether formal or informal) to be a member.
RSRO’s ecclesiastical members are non-voting members except for the Dean of the Organization who is required to be a member of the Board of Trustees. Ecclesiastical members may be appointed to the Board of Trustees at the Board’s discretion. Ecclesiastical members are the guardians of the “Absolute Truths” (also known as, the Canons of the Organization) that are discussed and identified. Deans, Associate Deans, and Assistant Deans will guide others as tutors and not as being the voice of God. Deacons are the instruments of the Church. Deacons obtain the faculty to exercise the diakonias of service and charity. Deacons will perform the ceremonies of this organization including, but not limited to, performing marriages and guiding those on life’s final journey. Deans, Associate Deans, and Assistant Deans are able to perform all rituals that a Deacon may perform.
To become a Deacon, one must complete a diploma program offered at the corporation’s seminary and take the oath below. Those who complete the Bachelor of Reconciliation of Science and Religion (or can show equivalent credentials) and take the oath below will be ordained as Assistant Deans.
