Progressive Christian movement. He is currently living in Bangor, Penn. where he is a resident theologian at Kirkridge Retreat Center.

When Mr. Morwood visits Brescia University, he will speak about the relationship between God and science and help people examine their own belief systems.

It is her hope that Mr.

Morwood's presentation will further the mission of the Contemporary Woman Program, which is "to work toward a future in which the equality of men and women will be realized and respected so that the gifts of all

people will be utilized and integrated to create a just and peaceful society."
