- How can we reconcile the creation accounts in Genesis with the findings of evolutionary and cosmological science?
- How can we engage in constructive, hospitable dialogue on these issues?
- How can we participate in these conversations without fear, following Christ’s model of self-giving love?
These questions have prompted scientists, philosophers, and theologians at Church of the Servant to dig deeper together, and with the congregation, into issues in faith and science. Church of the Servant has received a $30,000 grant from the Scientists in Congregations initiative, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, to foster dialogue between the Christian faith and modern science.
Program activities will include a series of public dialogues at Church of the Servant to be held in October 2011, February 2012, October 2012, and February 2013.
