Sofia does not think wisdom is dispensed supernaturally from on high, but that it can only be sought by humans at home on Earth, and is inseparable from human kindness.

Sofia regards religion as a human creation and, in rejecting the supernatural, is for this life and humanity with its questing imagination and enabling dreams.

Sofia is for diggers and seekers in its own native radical tradition and everywhere.

Sofia is the magazine of the Sea of Faith Network (UK) and is published quarterly. It is free to all members of the UK network. Non-members can subscribe to the magazine annually.

The Network has published its magazine since 1990. Issues 1-74 (1990-2004) of the magazine were first called Sea of Faith, then SOF.
