- 9:30 am:: Re-uniting Science and Religion. God-Talk : How Quantum Physics is Redefining “Almighty”
‘In this lecture, especially geared towards those who yearn for science and religion to be reunited in the quest for meaning, Dr. Meyers explores the impact of recent scientific discoveries about the nature of the universe on our understanding of God. Instead of our traditional view of a clockwork universe, where the Whole is merely the sum of its parts, quantum physics ( and especially something called quantum entanglement) has challenged long-held views on our relationship to the material world, even as it has validated the essential and timeless message of religious mystics.’
12.15pm. Enjoy discussion and your byo Picnic Lunch in Church Grounds-tea/coffee supplied. Take the opportunity to meet open-minded friendly people in a safe place.
- 1:30 pm: Undone – faith as resistance to Empire – What Kind of Church would You find Irresistible: The (Christian?) Imperative for socio/political engagement.
This Seminar is hosted by Caloundra Uniting Church Social Justice Group and is for all who are interested in social justice within our community .
Quote Dr. Meyers : “ It is a myth that the gospel of Jesus Christ can ever be personally redemptive without being socially responsible. If there is one distinction that is crucial for the future of the church it is this : charity and justice are not the same thing”.
