Scientific thought provides fresh openings to mysterious sacred depths of reality. Our current health crisis invites us to a humbling sense of our vulnerability and connection to a dynamic cosmos. Where do we encounter God in today’s chaos and creativity? How shall we pray and act today, alone and with others?
Join us for a one-day on-line retreat led by Sr. Donna Geernaert SC.
Donna is a Sister of Charity-Halifax and a theologian with wide experience in ecumenical and interfaith dialogue at international as well as national levels. With a doctoral thesis on Teilhard de Chardin, she has offered presentations on cosmology and Christianity for the International Union of General Superiors, the Canadian Religious Conference, plus other groups. She will guide us on a path that includes:
- Reading Genesis in the Context of an Evolving Cosmos.
- Encountering a Dynamic God of Promise and Hope.
- Re-imagining the Incarnation, Death and Resurrection of Jesus.
- New Approaches to Christian Mysticism and Morality.
Cost: $40 (online only)
The session will run from 10 AM until 2:30 PM
Technical requirements for virtual participation: computer or device with internet access, microphone and speakers or headphones with microphone; and an email address to receive invitation to the session.
