Wednesdays During Lent

All are invited to come together each Wednesday evening during Lent for a light meal and program centering on the video series Painting the Stars. Celebrating the communion of Science and faith, Painting the Stars explores the promise of evolutionary Christian spirituality, featuring over a dozen leading theologians and progressive thinkers.

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 with an awareness that you are not separate from the creativity that produced you.” — Bruce Sanguin, Author of If Darwin Prayed
