2017 Lecture Featuring Dianne Bergant, C.S.A.
"God So Loved the Cosmos - But Do We?"
Current cosmological insights have challenged us to look anew at many well-known theological concepts based on traditional interpretations of the Bible. Contemporary biblical interpretations done through an ecosensitive lens can throw new light on these theological concepts. Since spirituality reflects one’s theological perception, it will be affected by this cosmological revolution.
