This Reading Circle is for those intrigued by the contemporary scientific story of the origins of the universe and the evolution of life, and for those who want to articulate a spirituality that embraces this awareness and informs their living.
This Reading Circle seeks encounters with the Divine and the spiritual dimensions of life as manifested in the world’s ecologies, natural environments, challenges brought about through climate change and the mysteries of space and time.
We do this through reading, self-reflection, personal prayer and group discussion utilizing diverse texts written by scientists, theologians, people of faith and people of goodwill.
We meet six times a year for one hour usually via zoom. However, the first meeting is Tuesday 4th April 2023 in person. We will meet at 11.00am in the Carmelite Library with Philip Harvey the Librarian and have an opportunity to review the Eco Spirituality Book Collection. The Library is located at 214 Richardson Street, Middle Park. This will be followed by a lunch in Armstrong Street, Middle Park.
Other meetings for 2023 will be via zoom from 5.00 – 6.00 pm.
