January 5, 2018, Adrian, Michigan – As science brings to light ever more about the vastness of our universe and its evolution, how do we fit God and humanity into the picture? That is the question that Sister Sara Fairbanks, OP, PhD, will explore in her two-part series, “Who Are You as a Christian in an Evolving Universe?”
Sessions will be held from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, January 17, 2018, and January 24, 2018, at Weber Retreat and Conference Center in Adrian. During Part 1, Sister Sara will center on the question, “What does the new universe story say about God and humanity?” This session will explore the new discoveries of contemporary theologians about God our Creator and about our place in the universe.
During Session 2, Sister Sara will focus on “How does the biblical vision of humanity illumine the new universe story?” The biblical stories of creation found in Genesis 1-2 and in biblical wisdom literature will be studied for their key insights about God, humanity, and all of creation.
Currently the Director of Vocations for the Adrian Dominican Sisters, Sister Sara served as Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Barry University in Miami. She holds a master’s degree in theology from Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, Missouri, and a doctorate in theology from the University of St. Michael’s College, the Toronto School of Theology in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
