This year, the Institute for Religion and Science at Chestnut Hill College and the American Teilhard Association plan to sponsor Reading Circle on Zoom on the second Monday and Wednesday of each month. Both monthly sessions will involve the same content. Monday meetings are at 6:30-8:00pm ET and the Wednesday sessions are at 2:00-3:30pm ET.

We will be reading Teilhard’s The Divine Milieu. I expect to use a Lectio Divina style. In other words, during the meeting, we will be reading and discussing the material together slowly and thoughtfully. 

Here are the dates and tentative topics for the next four months:

September 11, 13: Read through Teilhard’s biography by Pierre Leroy, SJ. However, we will concentrate on the Preface and the Introduction during our first session.

October 9, 11: Part I: Divinisation of our Activities, sections 1, 2, 3 (up to Communion through our Activities)

November 13, 15: Part I: Divinisation of our Activities, sections 4, 5, 6. 

December 11, 13: Part II: Divinisation of our Passivities (up to but not including the Conclusion to Parts I and II)

If you wish to join us and are not yet on the mailing list for the Institute for Religion and Science Reading Circle, please send me an email stating your interest.
