Becoming familiar with our evolution over 14 billion years as discovered by contemporary science.

Exploring its implications for understanding our place in the universe.

Exploring the theological implications of this new cosmology.

Listening to the wisdom of the mystics.

Reflecting on themes from the Celtic Tradition.

Examining our images of God.
