Sunday, October 29, 2023 – 10:30 a.m. – “Oppenheimer’s Dilemma and Our Legacy” – Rev. Dr. Larry Peers

The recent film portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer based on the 2005 biography American Prometheus by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin reveals not only the dilemma of a man but the legacy that we’ve inherited since the development of the atom bomb. One commentator on Oppenheimer’s life states that “though not conventionally religious, Oppenheimer’s life and thought were permeated with themes and ideas of a religious and ethical nature that shaped his adult character and informed his view of the world.” (Curtis Hart).

A discussion of the film will take place in the parish hall following the service for those who would like to participate.
