Featuring eco-theologian, author, and TEDx speaker, Rev. Michael Dowd,
ProFuture Faith is a dynamic eight-session DVD and discussion-based
course that bridges the gap between head and heart, science and faith. The
basic format for each 1 – 1-1/2 hour session includes conversation around the
readings, a 20-minute video presentation and guided discussion.
Reading materials for each
session will be available the week before each session.
