When I have a terrible need of – dare I say, ‘religion’? – then I go outside at night and paint the stars.” — Vincent Van Gogh
Beginning September 29th, this seven-session series will meet on Sunday mornings at 10:10am in the chapel on the west end of the church.
“Mystery is a condition of awe, of resting precisely in an unknowing, long enough for the silence to have its way with us. The goal of this curriculum is to create some space for us to inhabit this mystery more deeply, and explore the relationship between science, particularly evolution, and religion. Perhaps most importantly, the hope is that each participant will feel from the inside what it is like to be the presence of all this creativity showing up after 13.7 billion years as him or her. Without this felt sense of being one with the creative process that is ceaselessly animating life, the conversation will remain objective and academic. We invite you to engage these seven weeks with an awareness that you are not separate from the creativity that produced you.”
— Bruce Sanguin, Author of If Darwin Prayed
