Title: Seeking Truth in Providence: The Emergence of the Vulnerable Rule of God

 How is the Reign of God being revealed in the suffering experience of the marginalized? What does it mean to identify as Daughters and Sons of God in an evolutionary context? And what does the Gospel of Jesus Christ have to do with “emergence”? These questions lie at the heart of the global mission of the Order of Preachers in the 21st Century, and their pursuit lures us into the unfolding Mystery of God’s Providence, requiring of us the kind of open-ended and vulnerable trust that mirrors God’s own risky trust in us. We will be companioned in our pursuit by the wisdom of contemporary theologians as well as key witnesses from our Dominican Family, ancient and new.
