January 6, 2023, Adrian, Michigan – St. Thomas Aquinas, a Dominican Friar, was a fierce proponent of science and religion working together in the revelation of God’s creation. Episcopal priest and theologian Rev. Matthew Fox, PhD, explores the relevance of St. Thomas Aquinas for our world today during a live stream presentation, The Tao of Thomas Aquinas: Fierce Wisdom for Hard Times. The program is offered by Weber Retreat and Conference Center from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, January 26, 2023.

In his presentation, Rev. Fox explores a number of Thomas Aquinas’ rich teachings, including the “original goodness” and love of God in everyday things; the primacy of conscience; the common good; compassion and justice; and non-dualism. 

Rev. Fox, a proponent of Creation Spirituality for more than 50 years, founded the University of Creation Spirituality in 1996 to establish a new pedagogy for learning spirituality that was grounded in an effort to reawaken the West to its own mystical traditions in figures such as Thomas Aquinas, Hildegard of Bingen, and Meister Eckhart. He has given lectures and retreats and written numerous books, including The Tao of Thomas Aquinas: Fierce Wisdom for Hard Times (2020).

The cost for the presentation is $20. Registration is required to receive the live stream link. Registration is available at www.webercenter.org; click on “programs.” Registrations may also be made by calling 517-266-4000 or emailing webercenter@adriandominicans.org. Limited scholarships are available.
