How do I incorporate scientific discoveries with my story of faith? What does evolution tell me about God, creation, nature, and my place in it all?
How can I celebrate being Christian in an evolving universe?
The new dialogues between contemporary culture/society, science and religion are ever changing, there is an urgent need for literacy about the nature-society relationship. There are valid challenges to our inherited structures for living and a need to reinterpret our traditional beliefs about the source of the universe, creation itself and the place of humans within it, theologically and philosophically.
In this retreat Sr Colette will help us to ponder these questions through reflective inputs with images, music and prayer. There will be time to spend time in the beauty of the natural setting in Ballyvaloo, to feel the gentle presence of God and nourish your soul, become aware of your place in the universe story and learn how much a part of nature you truly are.
* Can be a 6 Day Retreat if combined with Sr Una Agnew’s Retreat July 13th to 16th.
