God and the Multiverse

In this series we reviewed how the discoveries of modern cosmology can most rationally be explained by a God who deliberately created a universe — or multiverse — that would be fruitful of life.

We met Sundays in the Parlor from 10 to 10:50 am from November 4 through November 25, 2012.

Presentations were by David Monyak.
