Guest: Sister Elizabeth Johnson

This week I talk sister Elizabeth Johnson about the relationship between science, ecology, evolution, and Jesus. When exactly did the Church lose it's relationship with creation and once realizing it what do we as followers of Christ have to lose if we learn to engage in an honest conversation about science? 

Sister Johnson is a distinguished professor at Fordham in New York. She writes predominately around systematic theology, especially the mystery of the living God; the meaning of Jesus Christ and salvation; creation and ecological ethics; the problem of suffering; the dialogue between science and religion; interpretations of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and the communion of saints; and all of the above as related to the human dignity of women and articulated in feminist theology.
