Does it spark joy? This question may be very familiar today in popular culture as people seek to declutter their closets and cabinets. But simplifying and living mindfully both in our homes and in our inner lives is essential to spirituality and faith. Lent is a wonderful season of the year to look with God at our lives and to see what truly sparks joy and what can be let go so that we can live more freely. This transformation invites us then to be a spark of joy, healing, and peace for others.

“Emerging Spirituality in a Chaotic World” will be presented by Kathy Duffy, SSJ, PhD.

The universe we live in is dynamic, creative, and beautiful. Steeping ourselves in its dynamism, sensing its evolutionary direction, and sinking into its beauty, we come to know a divine immanent presence alive and active in the universe as well as a divine transcendent presence drawing us ever into the future. In our time together, we will consider what the universe reveals about our creator God and how we can become continually more conscious of our part in its ongoing evolution.

Kathleen Duffy, SSJ, PhD, is Professor Emerita of Physics at Chestnut Hill College, Director of the Institute for Religion and Science at Chestnut Hill College. She has also written extensively on topics related to the life and work of Teilhard de Chardin, SJ.
