Adult Forum - Neil O'Farrell, "Christian Mysticism in Surprising Places - Part 2"

Christian Mysticism in Surprising Places: Don’t look for Christian mystical writing just in the religion aisle. Science—particularly in the consideration of time, matter, and the universe— can often best be understood through a mystical lens. Among those who will be considered will be John Polkinghorne of Britain, perhaps an eventual winner of the Noble Prize in physics, who is an Episcopal priest and a deeply spiritual thinker and writer on such subjects as prayer, creation, and miracles. Also, Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit paleontologist, whose writings were suppressed in his life, but become immediately a transcendent new voice in Christian mystical devotion when published.
