NCCL: Intimations of the Creator from the science of time
Sat 24 Feb 2024 at 10.00 am - 12.30 pm
Norwich Cathedral, Norwich, NR1 4DH
Temporal themes in Christian theology
In the mental landscape of a Christian, the believer must negotiate a range of difficult issues concerning time and timeliness – such as providence, election, and prayer – while also grappling with concepts of an afterlife, and the immutable nature of an eternal God. The curious connection between space and time, revealed by Einstein’s theory of relativity, cannot resolve such issues, but an inference of higher dimensions sheds interesting light on temporal themes in Christian theology.
The session is led by David L. Andrews, Professor of Chemical Physics at the University of East Anglia. It is held in Norwich Cathedral Library.
Cost £15 for the two if both ‘Intimations of the Creator’ sessions are booked together (the first is on 18 November 2023).
