Given our impact on Earth’s climate, the seas, and other species, we are already in the early stages of what could be called, The Great Reckoning. The good news is that this could also be The Great Homecoming: The prodigal species, after squandering our inheritance, comes home to Reality. An evidence-based “sacred realism” can help us accept what is inevitable, avoid what is futile, and be a blessing to friends, family, and community in an uncertain world. This dynamic, multi-media presentation bridges the gap between head and heart and celebrates the convergence of science, inspiration, and sustainability.
Rev. Michael Dowd is bestselling eco-theologian and pro-science, pro-future ‘evangelist’ whose work has been featured in The New York Times, LA Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Newsweek, Discover, and on television nationally. Michael and his science writer, evolutionary educator, and fellow climate activist wife, Connie Barlow, have spoken to some 2,500 groups throughout North America since 2002. Michael has delivered two TEDx talks and a program at the United Nations. He has written a bridge- building book, Thank God for Evolution, which was endorsed by 6 Nobel Prize-winning scientists and by religious leaders across the spectrum. He has also conducted an acclaimed online conversation series: “The Future Is Calling Us to Greatness.”
