“Christ the Evolver” is a piece influenced by the life of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and the concept of the third, and cosmic nature, of Christ. The piece attempts to reimagine one of the oldest Christian icons, the Christ Pantocrator of St. Catherine’s monastery, within the context of the evolutionary mysticism of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin through the artistic process of digitally composite art.

But, beyond equality of gender and removal of old ecclesial structures, what structures or ways of living and worshiping would you promote in our day and beyond? Where do you worship now? How do you reflect the love of God beyond your writing? From a man of hope, MyrtMyrt Rollins
