FROM THE CAVE TO THE COSMOS: ART, SCIENCE, and the MYSTERIES OF OUR FAITH

December 1 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

 

The Center for Environmental Transformation (www.cfet.org) is excited to announce our 10th Annual Thomas Berry presentation on December 1 at 2pm at Sacred Heart Church in Camden NJ. Join us as internationally acclaimed artist and painter, Mickey McGrath, and internationally renowned author, scientist, Villanova professor, and cosmo-theologian, Ilia Delio, bring together new views of our Earth, our Cosmos, and the presence of God in all of it.

They will challenge us to think about our place in the expanding and evolving universe, challenging us to re-imagine what it means to be human in the light of quantum physics. With their passions for science and art, Ilia and Mickey will breathe new life into the timeless traditions and spiritualities of our faiths and practices. Their
joint conversation will inspire you and humble you.

We will celebrate the new season of Advent with this special event. There will be a reception following the presentations in our retreat house. Join us for soup, breads and cookies as we join our communities together in this sacred season of God’s unfolding presence to us and to all of nature.

CfET has two arms of development in Camden. We have a one-acre organic farm, two fruit orchards, and three bee hives. We hire young adults from Camden city as Ecointerns to tend the land, learn about the non-genetically modified crops they grow for the community, make our hot sauce (Kapow!) and harvest our honey ( Midas Gold). Our other arm is a 24 bed retreat house where we invite college and high school students to
join us in the work of the farm with the Camden Eco-Interns and in other non-profit service agencies in Camden. Together they learn from each other, and become agents of change for the world, for Camden and for each other. It’s important work and we ask you to join us as partners in it through attendance at this event.

This is a fund raiser for CfET. Tickets are $20 ($10 for students) and can be obtained through Cathy Nevins at canevins@verizon.net or at 856-816-6373.
