Who Are You as a Christian in an Evolving Universe?

Part 1: Wednesday, January 17, 2018
Part 2: Wednesday, January 24, 2018
1:30 - 3:00 p.m.

Part 1 centers on the question “What does the new universe story say about God and humanity?” Explore some of the new discoveries contemporary theologians have made about our Creator God and humanity’s place in the unfolding universe. Reflect on cosmic chaos and destruction and wrestle with human suffering and death.

Part 2 looks at the question “How does the biblical vision of humanity illumine the new universe story?” See the biblical stories of creation as a divine revelation capable of giving profound meaning to scientific discoveries. Explore Genesis 1-2 and the creation theme in biblical wisdom literature as they ground key insights about God, humanity, and all of creation.
