FROM ST. MARK LUTHERAN CHURCH:

 

DREW PROFESSOR, DR. CATHERINE KELLER, TO SPEAK ON MYSTICISM AND MODERN SCIENCE

MORRISTOWN, NJ – At 7:00 PM on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, at St. Mark Lutheran Church, 100 Harter Road, Morristown, NJ, Dr. Catherine Keller will speak on Mysticism and Modern Science.

Just as mystics throughout the ages in numerous spiritual/religious contexts experienced the relatedness of all creation with the divine, modern science today acknowledges the interdependence existing throughout the cosmos.

Dr. Keller will speak about the interrelation among humans and all created reality, focusing on Nicholas of Cusa, a 15th century bishop and cardinal, philosopher, theologian, canon lawyer, mathematician and student of cosmology.

Even before Copernicus and Galileo, Nicholas saw that the earth is not the center of the universe, and indeed that there is no center. Recognizing the inability of humans to comprehend God, his mysticism led him to the realization of the interrelatedness of all reality and of the interpenetration of God with created reality.

A professor of Constructive Theology at Drew University, Dr. Keller has taught for over two decades in the Theological School and its Graduate Division of Religion. Among her numerous books and publications are On the Mystery: Discerning God in Process, and The Face of the Deep: A Theology of Becoming.

All are welcome. There is no charge for the program.
