darwin1How can Christians discuss evolution in ways that move from scientific data towards spiritual inspiration? Bruce Sanguin and I try to recover a spirituality of awe and mystery, fostering an ecological Christianity.

Our talk covers:

disenchantment in the modern era
a new cosmology that encourages a deeper relationship with God and creation
viewing the gospel through an evolutionary, ecological lens

Bruce is the pastor of Canadian Memorial United Church in Vancouver, British Columbia and author of Darwin, Divinity, and the Dance of the Cosmos and The Emerging Church: A Model for Change and a Map for Renewal.

We also have a little fun with the legendary band Devo…in honor of Darwin’s 200th birthday (on Thursday) and 150th anniversary of On the Origin of the Species. Listen to find out the connection.
