Sister Laurie Brink Lectures on Reconciliation Dec. 3 

Dominican Sister of Sinsinawa Laurie Brink, OPDominican Sister of Sinsinawa Laurie Brink, OP, Ph.D.., will give a lecture, “Becoming Ambassadors of Reconciliation: Bridging the Divide of Differences,” as part of the yearlong 175th anniversary celebration of the Congregation of the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa. The public is invited to attend this free offering virtually at Saturday, Dec. 3, at 2 p.m. CST.

In this lecture, Sister Laurie will explore the theme of reconciliation and whole-making and propose a process that can enable us to truly respond to God’s call to be “ministers of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18) for a polarized church and world. From the prophets’ call to repentance to Paul’s announcement that we are ambassadors for Christ, the Scriptures are a poignant account of God’s continual invitation to return and be reconciled with God. In nature, the science of emergence recognizes the foundational wholeness of living systems.

Sister Laurie is professor of New Testament studies at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago. Her most recent publications include “The Heavens are Telling the Glory of God: An Emerging Chapter for Religious Life. Science, Theology, and Mission” (2022) and “What Does the Bible Say About Friendship” (2019).
