Come hear Gilbert draw on her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. Whether you hope to write a book, make art, or simply live more expansively in the world, she offers powerful insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration as well as the attitudes, approaches, and habits that support a creative life.
Come engage with scholar and former science teacher Elizabeth Johnson, Professor of Theology at Fordham University. Drawing from her book, Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love, she probes the meaning of creation in order to invigorate ethical behavior that cares for plants and animals with a passion integral to faith’s passion for the living God.
Among wise, creative, and inspiring theologians today, Elizabeth Johnson and Diana L. Hayes stand out. Both will be featured in the Hedgerow Seminar and through their most recent books. They will take us to the heart of issues challenging our faith today: our treatment of the natural world, and the poverty and prejudice embedded in U.S. social structures.
