God’s Old Diaries – A Geological Exploration

Presented by John Feehan 

Geology can be defined as the study of the early chapters in the story of Creation. This year’s Summer School at An Tairseach looks at how the study of earth’s story deepens our understanding of God’s purpose in Creation and our role in response. The week will consist of a mixture of lecture and discussion, field outings and laboratory enquiry. 

Join us in the garden of Ireland at the beautiful Ecology Centre, An Tairseach, in Wicklow Town for this unique experience. John Feehan’s profound insights into the beauty and wonder of the natural world have led him to become passionate about our responsibility as humans to care for our common home. The Summer School will consist of lectures, recognition of species, field trips in the surrounding Wicklow area and work with microscopes. There will also be time for meditation and prayer, to ponder on the miraculous in the everyday.
