Thank God for Evolution!

That is the title of a new book by Michael Dowd. Michael is a United Church of Christ minister. His wife, Connie Barlow, is a science writer. They live out of their van traveling the country with the good news of evolution. They will be coming to Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in September. We are communicating with them to make a combination event between our congregation and the UU church. More details on that to come.

I have just begun reading Thank God for Evolution and I find it fascinating. I think it is time that the churches rather than simply tolerate evolution, really celebrate the way God is creating us! Good stuff.

I invite you to check out the web page. You can also go to his blog, watch the book trailer, here an audio message, and check their schedule.

I am curious as to what you think.
