the bigger picture

May 2, 2019

Vatican Astronomer Br. Guy Consolmagno SJ was in Christchurch this week with three groups: lunch with the Business community of the Canterbury region, an afternoon session with high school and university students, and a public evening session.

These three events drew a total of just under 1000 people.

It was a pleasure and privilege for me to spend time “in conversation” with him at each of the gatherings.

Here is the first of the conversations, from the Business lunch. I will upload the second and third over the next few days.

  3. I love the connection between science, knowledge and awe – being fascinated by the bigger picture and saying wow! That for me is a God moment!
