Saturday, May 9 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm Emerging Spirituality in a Chaotic World

“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.
