Astrobiology is the study of life as it happens to planets. As we continue to discover more and more planets (3500+) and more and more diversity in Earth life (e.g., radiation and vacuum resistant bacteria), should we start to think differently about the definition and meaning of “life?” In an evening presentation, Dr. Mix will talk about the diverse and changing ways we think about life and why it matters to Christians. In the Lenten series that follows, he will lead participants in looking at the “life of the world,” the life of organisms, interior life, mental life, and life eternal. Participants will get a chance to share what life means to them and think together about what it means for Jesus Christ to bring life. All welcome to either or both parts of this offering.
