Emerging Hope in a Chaotic World 


The universe we live in is dynamic, creative, and beautiful. Steeping ourselves in its dynamism, sensing its evolutionary direction, and sinking into its beauty, we come to know a divine immanent presence alive and active in the universe as well as a divine transcendent presence drawing us ever into the future. During this lecture, we will consider what the universe reveals about our creator God and how we can become continually more conscious of our part in its ongoing evolution.
