John Cobb & Friends Gathering – Ilia Delio

April 19, 2022 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

Topic: Teilhard de Chardin as Process Thinker: Why We Can’t Stay Still and Neither Can God

Presenter(s): Ilia Delio

Teilhard de Chardin was an insightful process thinker who developed insights on science and religion that are valuable for our age. His ideas on a metaphysics of union, hyperphysics, the physics of love and mindful materiality all play a role in the Godworld relationship. I will discuss Teilhard’s unique contribution to process thought in his notion of the Christic and the elusive Omega Point.

Ilia Delio, OSF, is a Franciscan Sister of Washington DC and holds the Josephine C. Connelly Chair in Christian Theology at Villanova Universe. She is the author of over twenty-three books including Making All Things New: Catholicity, Cosmology and Consciousness, a finalist for the 2019 Michael Ramsey Prize and The Unbearable Wholeness of Being: God, Evolution and the Power of Love, for which she won the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award and a 2014 Catholic Press Association Book Award in Faith and Science. She is founder of the Center for Christogenesis, an online educational resource for promoting the vision of Teilhard de Chardin and, more broadly, the integration of science and religion in the 21st century.
