Journey of the Universe: Take 2!
April 23, 2017 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Missed the screenings of The Journey of the Universe held in February and March? Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church invites you to go on the Journey of the Universe in April. This Emmy-award winning documentary narrates the 14 billion year story of the universe’s development in a way that is accessible to everyone. The film tells a comprehensive story drawing on astronomy and physics to explain the emergence of galaxies and stars, geology and chemistry to understand the formation of Earth, biology and botany to trace life’s evolution, and anthropology and history to see the rise of humans. Journey weaves science and humanities in a new way that allows for a comprehensive sense of mystery and awe to arise. This approach expands the human perspective beyond an anthropocentric worldview to one that values life’s complexity and sees the role of humans as critical to the further flourishing of the Earth community.
An open facilitated discussion will follow the film screening. A sandwich lunch will be available at 12:30 p.m. (for $5/person payable at the door in cash). Please register. Contact Lisa Brenskelle at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
