In Darwin, Divinity, and the Dance of the Cosmos, ….. Sanguin draws on the latest scientific understandings of the nature of the universe and weaves them together with biblical meta-narratives and frequently overlooked strands of the Judeo-Christian tradition to create an ecological and truly evolutionary Christian theology …, It’s time for the Christian church to get with the cosmological program. We need new wineskins for the new wine the Holy One is pouring out in the 21st century. Twenty-first-century science has provided us with new a new story of creation that needs to inform our biblical stories of creation. We now know, for instance, that we live in an evolving or evolutionary universe. Evolution is the way that the Holy creates in space and in time, in every sphere: material, biological, social, cultural, psychological, and spiritual. This new cosmology simply cannot be contained by old models and images of God, or by old ways of being the church.”
On November 3 we will introduce the book, decide on a starting time, and choose the Saturdays we will use for the study to start (at least every second Saturday if not every Saturday). The book has 8 chapters; I believe we will need 10 days for this study including the introductory meeting and a Where do we go from here concluding session.
