CONSPIRE 2014: A Benevolent Universe ~ MP4
If God is Trinity and Jesus is the face of God,
then it is a benevolent universe.
God is not someone to be afraid of,
but is the Ground of Being and on our side.
Bestselling author Rob Bell joins Franciscans Richard Rohr and Ilia Delio in exploring the foundation of the Christian faith. Through Scripture, human experience, and science, these masterful teachers show that from the very beginning God has been bringing life from seeming chaos. Cosmic evolution and the life of Jesus reveal the universal pattern—life-death-life. Out of death God creates healing and resurrection, new forms of beauty and abundance.
The story of the cosmos is our own story; we are intimately, quantumly entangled with each other and with the source of love. As Ilia Delio says, “We are in the universe and the universe is in us.” And the story is continually evolving! Humans have the privilege and responsibility of shaping the trajectory of evolution through our conscious intentions and actions, toward greater harmony and wholeness.
