UCN Clara Barton Room
A Six-Week Adult Religious Education Course including six sermons on DVD. This course was written by Dr. Sara Zimmerman, a former member of UCN..Six ministers and lay persons offer the sermons contained in this curriculum speaking “to the real needs of people in their contemporary situation.”
Theological Perspective: “Our religious understanding of the world and our place in it must make sense in light of our contemporary scientific understanding of the universe. A long-standing principle of religious liberalism is that our religious meaning-making structures should not be isolated from the other cultural currents that flow alongside them.”
The Six Modules
- Aug. 6: Module 1: “Regarding the God Particle: If the Universe is the Answer, What is the Question?”
Presenter: Rev. Abhi Janamanchi, Senior Minister, Bethesda, MD “Does discovery of the Higgs-boson particle somehow prove that God created the world and everything in it? Or does discovery of the Higgs-boson particle prove that God doesn’t exist? A third possibility is that the discovery of the Higgs-boson particle reaffirms the interconnectedness of all that is.
