Due to ongoing pandemic uncertainty, we are thrilled to be able to offer, once again, our interactive, monthly Zoom gatherings entitled Benedictine Conversations. Each month will feature a guest who will help us explore the Benedictine legacy in our world today!
Our 2021-2022 Benedictine Conversations series (via Zoom) will feature guests
who will help us to explore the connection between Beauty and Justice.
October Benedictine Conversation!
"Wonder, Value and Justice"
with Dr. Gary Boelhower
Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
Justice is grounded in the foundational moral experience of the value of persons and the natural world. This experience of the preciousness of another being or a special place is the substrate for respect and the origin of the claim that justice has on all our lives. Stories, poetry and the arts help us to experience wonder and awe; they enable us to see the inestimable worth of others and our environment and to respond with justice.
Dr. Gary Boelhower has been teaching and writing for 51 years. He is professor emeritus in Theology and Religious Studies at The College of St. Scholastica and an award-winning poet and writer. He’s published 4 volumes of poetry, three books on theology and spirituality and, most recently, his first children’s picture book—A Common Thirst.
**There is no fee for Benedictine Conversations, but gifts to support the Center for Spirituality and Enrichment (a ministry of the Sisters of St. Scholastica) are gratefully accepted.
