SCUCC to offer Summer Sunday Seminar Series once again

By Staff | Apr 25, 2018

Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ will resume its Summer Sunday Seminar Series.

Offered Sundays at 9 a.m. from May to October, the program features a variety of topics.

All are free and open to the public.

The first series, Painting the Stars, will explore the interface between science and religion. Utilizing video presentations by a variety of contributors, including Matthew Fox, Bruce Sanguin, John Shelby Pong and others, it celebrates the relationship between science and faith and explores the promise of evolutionary Christian spirituality.

Featured presenters include various evolutionary theologians and progressive thinkers. Topics to be covered include healing the rift between science and faith, reassessment of the creation stories in Genesis, and evolutionary Christianity and mysticism, among others.

Each session will feature a short introduction, video presentation and guided discussion.

Most sessions will be facilitated by the senior pastor, the Rev. Dr. John H. Danner.

“I am excited to be able to bring this important groundbreaking work to Sanibel,” he said. “The connection between science and faith is so enormously important.”

The Painting the Stars series will run from May 6 to June 17.

The sessions will be held in Heron Hall at the church, at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.
