Recently, I was at a retreat house in New Jersey with a group of older religious Sisters who were finishing up a week of prayer and reflection. I sat across from a retired Sister of Saint Joseph at dinner one evening and she asked me, what does it mean to live in evolution? All this talk about evolution, she said, I am not sure I really understand it [or why we need to keep talking about it!] I am sure a lot of people have the same question. Can’t we just talk about God, people, and politics? What’s the big deal about evolution?
