Yale Offering Free Lenten Online Course on the Journey of the Universe

Share
Yale University is offering three six-week online courses that can be audited for free under the theme of "Journey of the Universe: A Story for our Times." Two  courses are on Journey of the Universe and one is on the Worldview Of Thomas Berry.

Take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity.  These courses center on eco-theologian Thomas Berry and the application of his work and writing to understanding the earth, God’s gift of creation – the cosmos, and our relationship and responsibility.  This is an excellent opportunity for small groups in churches to participate in the courses, and then gather weekly to discuss with one another…. And then launch a green team in their church.

Two courses – each of them 2 hours long – can be viewed at any time.  They center on the Emmy-award winning film, Journey of the Universe, the book from Yale University Press, and a series of 20 interviews with scientists and environmentalists, titled Journey Conversations
 
The third course focuses on the life and writing of eco-theologian Thomas Berry (1914-2009) whose early voice awakened moral sensibilities to the environmental crisis.  He is known for articulating a “new story” of the universe that explores the implications of the evolutionary sciences and cultural traditions for creating a flourishing future.  It is in seven parts, and you can spend 1-3 hours on each of those 7 parts.
 
An Integrating Capstone course is also available as part of the specialization certificate - it is not available to audit.
