How did our beautiful planet come to be? What is the role of humans in this cosmic journey? Join the Interfaith Climate Justice Community for a showing of the award winning documentary of Journey of the Universe. Evolutionary philosopher Brian Thomas Swimme and Yale historian of religions Mary Evelyn Tucker have crafted an elegant narrative story of the universe that illuminates and celebrates the profound role humans play in the flourishing of the Earth. At its very heart, the film explores cosmic evolution as a profoundly wondrous process based on creativity, connection and interdependence. Both Swimme and Tucker envision an unprecedented opportunity for the world’s people to address the daunting ecological and social challenges of our time.
This film opens a dialogue that continues with a presentation by Ilia Delio, OSF, “Consciousness and Cosmology: The Path to Wholeness” on Thursday, March 30, at 7:30 at the Montante Cultural Center, Canisius College, 2001 Main Street, Buffalo.
This event is sponsored by the Interfaith Climate Justice Community, the Burchfield Penny Art Center, and the Climate Justice Coalition of WNY.
