Exploring the intersection of cosmology and theology with Ilia Delio at the Rothko Chapel
Thursday, February 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Rothko Chapel is preparing to host an event exploring the dynamic intersection of theology and science – and diving into one woman’s concept of the divine, the universe and Christianity.
At 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15, the Chapel is hosting a conversation with Franciscan nun Ilia Delio – moderated by Bill Kerley, a therapist and spiritual teacher. A public reception on the plaza will follow.
The “pay what you can” event has a suggested value of $15. The Chapel is located at 3900 Yupon St.
Ilia Delio, a Franciscan Sister out of Washington, DC, is a theologian focused on the overlap of science and religion. Her interests include evolution, physics and neuroscience – as they pertain to theology.
Delio currently holds the Josephine C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University and has authored 17 books, including “Care for Creation” (co-written with Keith Warner and Pamela Woods).
The conversation is part of the Chapel’s continuing series, “Concept of the Divine,” which provides a platform for speakers to explain how their personal concept of God has changed over time and shaped their lives, their service to the community and their understanding of their own identity.
