What is the meaning and the role of Christianity in our ever-changing, inter-related, technological world? Join us for four stimulating discussions to explore this question and more! In A Hunger for Wholeness: Soul, Space and Transcendence (Paulist Press, 2018), Ilia Delio, OSF, a Franciscan sister, scientist, and theologian, builds on insights of Jesuit scientist Teilhard de Chardin and the findings of quantum physics to deliver a thought-provoking, deeply insightful reflection on the relationship of God, humanity, and nature in an ever-evolving cosmos. Instructions on procuring the book will be available upon registration. (Discussion of this book is an excellent preparation for the author’s presentation in Duluth in November.)
Facilitators: Sister Mary Catherine Shambour, OSB, longtime member of St. Scholastica Monastery, retired secondary and college instructor and vocation director. Marilyn Mayry, an Oblate of St. Scholastica Monastery, retired college instructor, and counselor.
Program Cost: Free will offering
