About this event

The Soil of Spirituality: What Agrarians can Teach Us About the Life of Faith

Speaker: Professor Norman Wirzba, Senior Visiting Fellow at the Laudato Si' Research Institute

About:

For around 10,000 years people around the globe have secured their livelihoods through agricultural work. Care of land, plants, fellow animals, and community members shaped their daily activities, their self-understanding, and how they thought about life’s major questions. It is only recently that these long-standing agrarian sensibilities have been eclipsed.

But can agrarian ways teach us about God, the nature of humanity, and the place of human beings in the world? What does an agrarian spirituality look like in an increasingly urban world?
