A contemplative gaze: the Incarnation through evolutionary eyes

Witness & Grace Conversations

A contemplative gaze: the Incarnation through evolutionary eyes
Presented by Sr. Nancy Sylvester, IHM

December 14, 2022


We are living in an incredible time as we experience seeing the birth of stars through the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). We are looking back in time and seeing things we never could before. The evolution of our faith in this context is just emerging and is full of questions and wonderings. Nancy Sylvester, IHM reflects on our faith from this new perspective.
