This program seeks to understand religious faith in the context of our new scientific story of the universe. The arrival of religious faith is one of the most intriguing developments in human history and cosmic history. Yet the significance of religious and especially Christian faith for our understanding of the universe and vice-versa remains largely unexplored. Participants are encouraged, though not required, to read The Cosmic Vision of Teilhard de Chardin (Orbis, 2021) and/or God After Einstein (Yale University Press, 2022).
