About the program
Facilitated by Jane McKinlay, RSCJ, this virtual program explores how learning to live our lives more fully in the context of evolution is to enhance our capacity for life in the Heart of God.
When we probe the Evolutionary Narrative — both the faith world and the scientific world are trying to grasp it more fully — we find that doing so graces our lives. Opening the door to an understanding of reality that reconfigures existence and our place in it, the Evolutionary Narrative impacts our spiritual journeys, nourishing them and deepening them.
During nine sessions we will expose ourselves to this impact, respond to new avenues of the Spirit, and enjoy the refreshment this gives us.
Program participants will meet virtually once a month on the second Wednesday of the month from August, 2022-May, 2023. Exact time TBD.
