Abstract

What does it mean to make a place for God in our lives? What can the created world and its cycles teach us about who God is and who He created us to be? Join theologian and master gardener Dr. Vigen Guroian as he explores the meaning of beauty, and its relationship to virtue, the spiritual life and living out the Easter mysteries.

 

Bio

Dr. Vigen Guroian is Professor of Religious Studies in Orthodox Christianity at the University of Virginia, the same school from which he received his B.A. in 1970. In 1978 he received his PhD from Drew University. He is the author of nine books including the noted Tending the Heart of Virtue: How Classical Stories Awaken a Child’s Moral Imagination and Rallying the Really Human Things: Moral Imagination in Politics, Literature, and Everyday Life.  He has contributed over 200 articles to journals, magazines, books, encyclopedias, and newspapers on a wide range of subjects including morality, ethics, liturgy, marriage and family, children’s literature, the sexualization of the modern American university, and bio-ethics. Dr. Guroian is a permanent Senior Fellow of the Russell Kirk Center for Cultural Renewal, a Senior Fellow of the Center on Law and Religion of Emory University, Senior Fellow of the Trinity Forum, and a Richard M. Weaver Fellow. Dr. Guroian’s books Inheriting Paradise and The Fragrance of God, both Christian meditations on gardening, have earned him invitations to speak and give readings at churches and gardening groups in the U.S. and Great Britain.
