One Strange Rock: Faith and Science Seeking Understanding
Wednesdays at 6:30pm - starts February 5th
 
Why is the Earth, the third rock from the sun, so very different from the rest of our solar system?  How does our understanding/ perspective motivate us to live a life of faith with awe and wonder and with care for the Earth?
 
Narrated by astronauts, (including Canada’s remarkable Chris Hadfield) the only persons to have had the opportunity to see the Earth from space, the documentary tells the story of Earth’s history as seen from a planetary perspective. Within our solar system, planet Earth is unique among the planets, moons, and dwarf planets. Only Earth has a breathable atmosphere, the ability to “heal” itself following planetary bombardment in its early history and more recent “extinction events,” and very large amounts of liquid water on its surface.
 
“Earth is unique because this is where life has developed and is sustained. The evolution of life over time has terraformed a once barren rock into a paradise perfect for life. The past and present state of the Earth’s biosphere has made our home planet into our only home. One Strange Rock tells Earth’s story from its very violent and fiery beginning, 4.5 billion years ago, through the development of microbial life 3.9 billon years ago, to its present state, hosting millions of living species.” (Journeys in Film)
 
We’ll watch the episodes and reflect on the themes using the lenses of Christian faith and spirituality.
Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary, come for one or all of the sessions
Featuring episodes from “One Strange Rock the National Geographic Documentary
Ages:  Everyone is welcome although the discussion time will be best suited for teens-adults.
 
Sponsored by the Christian Education Committee and Knox Green Team.
