Event Description: If Christianity still matters, then why? McIntosh will argue that Jesus was an activist on a cosmic scale. He understood nonviolence as the power of love. Religion of the first and second millennia has, for the mostpart, compromised that vision. Third Millennium Christianity is a refreshed opening of the way. It seeks, perhaps with other faiths, to walk the mystical path and bring fresh hope into the world.
