March 22, 2018, Adrian, Michigan – As we continue to celebrate the Easter Season, Weber Center invites you to explore with Sister Patricia Walter, OP, three questions about Jesus in light of Christian tradition and contemporary science: What does it mean to say that Jesus is both human and divine? What is the relationship between Jesus of Nazareth and the Cosmic Christ? What is the relationship between Jesus and other savior figures?
Sister Pat will explore these questions in a series of talks at Weber Center from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. on Mondays, April 9, 16, and 30.
Former Prioress of the Adrian Dominican Congregation, Sister Pat has taught theology at Siena Heights University in Adrian, St. Mary Seminary in Cleveland, and the Pontifical University of St. Thomas in Rome. She holds a licentiate in theology from the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, California, and a doctorate in philosophical and systematic theology from the Graduate Theological Union, also in Berkeley.
The cost for the series is $25, paid in advance, or $10 per session. Registration is required. To register, call Weber Center at 517-266-4000 or register online at webercenter.org/Registration.aspx.
