Rev. DowdThe public is invited to First Presbyterian Church of Rumson on the evening of Monday, June 6, when guest speaker and “Pro-Future Evangelist” Michael Dowd delivers a talk entitled Standing for the Future: Inspiring Science, Evolving Faith, Realistic Hope.

Scheduled for 7 p.m. and presented by The Monmouth Community Climate Coalition, the program, geared for adults and teens, asks the question “How do we stay inspired in the face of changing climate?” — and focuses on points of agreement held by religious and non-religious people across the globe, suggesting how we can transform “The Great Reckoning” into “The Great Homecoming.”

The presentation builds on Rev. Dowd’s most recent TEDx talk, “Reality Reconciles Science and Religion”, and expands on his best-selling, bridge-building book, Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World, which was endorsed by 6 Nobel Prize-winning scientists as well as religious leaders across the spectrum.

The talk will be preceded at 6:30 p.m. by complimentary refreshments. Admission to the June 6 event is free of charge, and no reservation is required. (Photo courtesy David Sunfellow Photography)
