The British Teilhard Network

The British Teilhard Network promotes the work and vision of the priest-scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin – a vision of love, of fire, of convergence, of a world in evolution energised by spirit, a vision of dynamism and direction – of a universe in movement towards its ultimate consummation or completion in a ‘universal cosmic centre’ or ‘centre of centres’.

  • Where are we heading?
  • What is the meaning of life?

Teilhard gives answers to these questions based on deep thought, reflection and mystical insight.

Are you on a quest that makes sense in our world – a world of change, a cosmos in evolution? If you are, this is the site for you.

THIS MONTH’S SUGGESTED TITLE
Teilhard de Chardin: The Search for the Light in Evolution
by the award-winning author Bernard Fleury. See: http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/3852220

THIS MONTH’S SUGGESTED ARTICLE
The July edition of The Christian Century
, the leading Protestant magazine in the USA, featured an article by Dr. David Grumett of the School of Divinity at Edinburgh University, Scotland. It was prompted by the discovery of the long-lost “Six Propositions”, signed reluctantly by Teilhard de Chardin in 1925. Dr. Grumett’s article puts the Six Propositions in the context of Teilhard’s life and times.
