Awakening to a New Consciousness Lecture by Professor John Haught

Wednesday 29th May 2019 7 pm

Venue: Winton Building Room 5, King Alfred Quarter

Inside Our Awakening Universe: The New Cosmic Story and the Meaning of Faith

 Scientists now know that the universe is a story still unfolding. From the perspective of physics the cosmos may look like a process of heat exchanges and energy transformations, but if we look deep inside we see that the universe has also given rise, at least on Earth, to beings eager to understand where they came from, where they are going, and what they should be doing with their lives. From this "inside" perspective, then, the universe is a story of awakening. But how are we to read the story? Is its awakening a mere departure destined for an eternal sleep?

This lecture examines three distinct ways of answering these questions, and in doing so it offers a new understanding of the spiritual life.

Christian Faith and Ecology in an Unfinished Universe

John Haught speaks of a sacramental approach to Christian ecological theology. This now requires a whole new interpretation of what it means to be Christian. In the face of the environmental crisis it will not do simply to take more seriously our inherited texts and teachings. These are still important, but they must be carefully sifted and reinterpreted in terms of a cosmological, relational, non-hierarchical, nonpatriarchal, non-dualistic, and more organismic understanding of the universe. We must pay more attention to the sacral quality of the universe. This new outlook accepts the doctrines of the creed but gives them a cosmological interpretation.
