August 22, 2019, Adrian, Michigan – As fall brings the busy-ness of a new school year and increased activities, Weber Retreat Center offers a special program to enrich your faith and knowledge.
In a nine-part series, “Painting the Stars: Science, Religion, and Evolving Faith,” Adrian Dominican Sister Esther Kennedy, OP, introduces participants to the ways in which our recent scientific knowledge informs and enriches our faith. Through the study of Catholic theologians and Christian thinkers, Sister Esther helps participants to discover a spirituality for our times. Participants read selected materials ahead of time, and together during the sessions watch a 20-minute video presentation and engage in guided discussion.
Sessions are held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Weber Center. The first session, on Monday, September 9, 2019, focuses on “Healing the Rift.” Other sessions are on Thursday, September 19, 2019 and Mondays, September 23 and 30 and October 7, 14, and 21. The cost is $30 for the series and $5 for each individual session.
