Noted Speaker and Theologian to Discuss the Logic of Love in a World of Chaos

August 19, 2018, Adrian, Michigan – We yearn for wholeness and unity, but the way forward is not exclusive, symmetrical, or orderly. “Chaotic Path to Wholeness: The Logic of Love,” a workshop presented by Sister Ilia Delio, OSF, addresses this issue. The workshop is from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, September 8, 2018, at Weber Center.

Sister Ilia, a noted speaker and theologian, specializes in the area of science and religion, with special interest in evolution, physics, and neuroscience. She uses insights from these areas to explore the logic of love in a world of chaos and uncertainty. A Franciscan Sister of Washington, D.C., Sister Ilia holds the Joseph C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University, where she is a tenured Professor of Theology.
