Evolutionary Christianity Teleseries (Dec 4 - Feb 1)

Advent of Evolutionary Christianity

TO: All Christian and ex-Christian friends and colleagues:

You have probably heard it reported that renowned physicist Stephen Hawking wrote in his new book: "There is no place for God in theories on the creation of the Universe." With news like this, is it any wonder that so many Christians feel torn between science and religion, and some also struggle with maintaining their faith, or just throw in the towel?

This is one of the key issues that will be discussed in a groundbreaking, FREE online event that I am hosting and participating in, and invite you to experience too. It’s called...

“The Advent of Evolutionary Christianity: Conversations at the Leading Edge of Faith.”

This teleseries (telephone & computer, not television) will feature me and 30 other leaders in the nexus of science and religion, including two Nobel laureates, three Templeton Prize-winners, and more than two dozen others who exemplify by word and deed that religious faith can be strengthened, enriched, and naturalized by a science-honoring, evolutionary view of the world (see below for complete list of participants and schedule).
Some of the topics we will discuss:

• How scientific and historical evidence, interpreted meaningfully, can enhance our lives and faith.
• Inspiring ways to integrate heart and head, tradition and science, within the frame of an emergent cosmos.
• Compassionate, effective responses to both those who reject science and those who reject religion.
• How an evolutionary view of human nature can deepen our appreciation of scriptural insights and help us live lives of greater joy and contribution.
• Opportunities for discovering common ground amidst our radically differing perspectives.
• And much more...

“The Advent of Evolutionary Christianity: Conversations at the Leading Edge of Faith Teleseries" will be announced to media outlets both nationally and internationally. We expect more than 20,000 people to register for this landmark series, which will run through the Advent/Christmas season and January as well.

You can listen and participate live or experience the online audios later at your convenience.

Co-evolutionary blessings,
