brescia 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (10/22/13) - The Contemporary Woman Program of Brescia University will host Michael Morwood, internationally renowned speaker and author. Mr. Morwood will speak on "Living Between Stories: Exploring the Questions."

He has been heavily involved in retreats and educational development ministries for over forty years and is well known in the United States as well as internationally for his work with the

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 time we Christians in particular should stop seeing science as the enemy of religion and rather see it as presenting us with an extraordinary window to the Divine active all around us," Morwood explains.

All proceeds from the event will go toward the Endowed Chair of the Contemporary Woman Program. The program is funded entirely by donations and proceeds from events such as this. The Contemporary Woman Program, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, offers programs for bothmen and women for "the sheer joy of learning," according to Sr. Rose Marita O'Bryan, director of the program. 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."
