Community Sharing – Love and the Universe

In preparation for our upcoming webinar “What is Love and Why it’s Essential to Understanding the Universe” with Thomas Jay Oord, we are inviting you to ponder the following questions and offer your own insights and reflections.
– What does “love” mean to you?
– How does it relate to “knowing” the universe?


“Can we really “know” love or just experience it? Does truly knowing anything about the Universe include experiencing ourselves as part of the whole… not above it or in control of it?”
–Mary Beth Duffy

“The history of life is a narrative of meeting and relationship. Atoms meet together in molecular systems, cells meet together in organic system, species meet and make together a complex and wonderful eco-system, every human being try to meet each other wether in a biological or spiritual way. These relationships are always challenging, but not always fruitful, healthy or constructive. Often they are, instead, sterile, harmful or devastating.Through the human beings, the biosphere reached to know itself (Teilhard’s noosphere) and we know our responsibility in maintaining the whole life o Earth-system. In this critical moment, love, as the only mandate of God, could lead us in the right way for this task: taking care of the neighbor and the planet.”
–Juan V. Fernandez de la Gala.

“It’s all energy in the Cosmos, the love of God – God who IS Love – flaring forth (self giving as creation, incarnate in creation, in evolutionary processes) from the beginning of time and space, the Cosmos being in God and God being in, but also greater than or transcendent from, the Cosmos?”
–M Clare Pierson

Featured Testimonial

I have been watching Ilia's talks and reading her writings quite often. Last year I interviewed Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim in Beijing while they were here for an international conference. In that interview we also talked a lot about Ilia's great works not only through the Christogenesis Center, but also though her teaching and writing. One young student name Liu Zheng is planning to do a fellowship with Ilia when the Covid-19 pandemic is over; he has been in touch with me very often sharing his ideas. Hope to be able to communicate and interview Ilia as well in the not distant future!
