Dear friends of Earth,
Attached is an invitation to a winter solstice and Christmas celebration on December 20th. The speaker, Michael Dowd, was one of the first Christian theologians to incorporate the findings of science re: the origins of the universe with Christian theology. He is a creative writer and an engaging speaker. He and his wife Connie Barlow, an acclaimed science writer, travel throughout North America on a full time basis, speaking on the connections between religion and ecology.
Please join us!

“Christmas: Celebration of Light and Hope”

A Winter Solstice Celebration with Rev.Michael Dowd

Monday, December 20, 2004, 6:30 – 8:30 PM

We live in challenging times. At this “darkest time of the year”, Rev. Dowd’s inspiring message of realistic hope for the future based on long-term and short-term trends is healing balm for the soul. Don’t miss it!

       THE REV. MICHAEL DOWD, a gifted preacher, teacher, and
       evolutionary theologian, has been called "America's evolutionary
       evangelist." Michael’s 1991 book, EarthSpirit: A Handbook for
       Nurturing an Ecological Christianity, was one of the earliest
       attempts to look appreciatively at New Testament faith from the
       perspective of a modern cosmology. During the 1980s and 90s,
       Michael pastored three United Church of Christ congregations,
       worked with Jewish, Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Evangelical
       leaders across America. Michael’s great joy is telling the 14
       billion year history of the Universe in ways that touch, move,
       and inspire people of all ages and theological orientations.
       Michael and his wife, Connie Barlow (an acclaimed writer of
       popular science books), live permanently on the road, teaching
       and preaching an awe-inspiring, science-based spiritual message
       of hope and possibility in churches, colleges, and living rooms
       all across North America.
