After  27 years, Bruce recently resigned from congregational ministry. He is in a liminal phase of his life and career, looking forward to listening to the deeper currents of soul and spirit, and waiting on his new future to emerge. Bruce does a lot of speaking around the world on the topic of evolutionary spirituality and practice.

This year's theme:  The Advance of Love which was gleaned from Bruce's book "The Advance of Love"

Using evolution as a lens through which to view Christian faith, Sanguin examines the moral, spiritual and scientific issues raised today from a fresh point of view. Sanguin's reflections help revitalize faith and reinforces that you don't need to sacrifice a rational, evidence-based worldview to be a person of faith in the twenty-first century.  Join us as we learn to read the Bible with an evolutionary heart and explore the paths and practices of evolutionary mysticism celebrating the advance of love.  For more information about Bruce Sanguin visit brucesanguin.com
