Experiencing scientific research first hand has given Dr Ruth Bancewicz a sense of awe that has enhanced her faith, and for ten years she has been a communicator of the positive expressions of the science-faith dialogue.

Beauty, Wonder, and Awe in Science and Faith

Ruth Bancewicz, BioLogos Advisory Council
March 18, 2015

On Wednesday, March 18, Ruth Bancewicz will be speaking at Cascade Fellowship in Grand Rapids, MI. Her talk is based off of her book “God in the Lab: How Science Enhances Faith” and is titled “Beauty, Wonder, and Awe in Science and Faith”.

Experiencing scientific research first hand brings a sense of awe that can enhance faith. This is a topic that Ruth Bancewicz has been investigating, alongside six other scientists, for the last three years. Science can be unglamorous and tough but it brings the opportunity to use creativity and imagination, and to appreciate the beauty of the natural world. These experiences can raise spiritual questions, revealing common ground between science and faith. For Christians, they can lead to a greater sense of worship. Whether you are a professor or haven’t studied science since high school, come for an evening of exploration that will raise some important questions about both science and faith.

Entrance is free, and includes refreshments and hands-on science demonstrations.

Can your career serve the mission of the church?  Come for a discussion of ways that science can be a truly Christian vocation.

Creation, Design, and Evolution
Can faith and science get along? When it comes to the history of life and the universe, many people think that science is in conflict with the Bible.  But what exactly is in conflict?  We’ll dig into the scientific evidence and ponder what the Bible is really teaching us, listening to both God’s world and God’s word.  Come for a review of several Christian views on creation and evolution, with plenty of time for Q&A.

Christian Perspectives in Science

Jeffrey Schloss, BioLogos Senior Scholar
February 13, 2015
Grand Rapids, MI

BioLogos Senior Scholar Jeff Schloss will be speaking at the Christian Perspectives in Science Seminar Series at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His talk is titled “‘Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!’: Evolution’s Big Three Challenges to Theism”.

Abstract: The “creation - evolution debate” is of course not a single controversy at all, but entails disagreements about numerous issues, including the adequacy of scientific evidence for key proposals of evolution like common descent, the teaching (if any) of scriptures on issues like earth’s age and a primordial human pair, and - the focus of this talk - the general implications of evolution for biblical theism.  Three issues have commanded particular attention from the time of Darwin until the present: the question of design and divine purpose in nature, the issue of human “animality” and its implications for moral responsibility, and the way in which evolution is seen to exacerbate the problem of natural evil.  Although these issues are both complex and legitimately important, their assessment is often dominated by polarized pronouncements that the findings of science are both clear and utterly noxious in their implications for belief in a wise and moral Creator, or that they present no serious challenge.  This talk will describe and assess new findings in evolutionary theory that make the first extreme unfounded, but do not fully justify the second.  It will argue that, rightly understood, evolution can be seen as concordant with but not demonstrative of theism, and is beset by the ambiguity that has always attended Christian reflection on the natural world.  Seeing concord does not just provoke, but requires theistic belief.

This week-long course is a primary way we, the instructors, will engage in helpful dialog with pastors. We will learn through this process what materials, information and discussion questions are most useful for fostering greater understanding of key issues, and this will be used to further improve and develop the course itself and other materials for use by people of faith in other contexts. This year, the 20 participants in the course are from all over the US, Canada and include local pastors from Korea.

Associated with this course, there are three evening events open to the public:
Tuesday July 29: Dr. Ashley Zauderer (Title: “Transient Astronomy and Gamma Ray Bursts (in plain English) “
Wednesday July 30: Dr. David Ussery (Title: “A medical revolution from rapid DNA sequencing (in plain English)”. Dr Ussery is a leading expert on microbial bioinformatics)
Thursday July 31: Public showing of the documentary film “Naturally Obsessed: The Making of a Scientist”
These begin at 6:00 PM in the Gordon College Ken Olsen Science Center, Room 109.
Each of these public events will be followed by informal discussion of the talk and its relation to faith and science.

This is the first workshop funded by this grant. Approximately 20 pastors will be attending, from all over the US and Canada, and Korea.

A Dialogue on Morality, Religion, and Evolution

Jeff Schloss, Senior Scholar
June 3, 2014
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

On June 3, Jeff Schloss presented “Do We Need God to be Moral? A Dialogue on Morality, Religion, and Evolution” in Amsterdam. His talk with primatologist Frans de Waal was recorded and can be viewed here.

Abstract:
What distinguishes a human being from other primates? Although many different answers are possible, most people will argue that, among other things, human beings have a capacity for moral reflection that influences our decisions while other primates are led by their instincts. Instead of following our natural instincts of aggression, violence and sexuality, we consider values like equality, freedom and responsibility of major importance. These values are grounded in a religion, a worldview or a philosophy.

“Galaxies, Genes, and the Glory of God: Intersections of Science and Christian Faith”

Deborah Haarsma, President of BioLogos
May 2, 2014
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary; Pittsburgh, PA

Deborah Haarsma will be speaking at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in May. This lecture is part of the annual J. Hubert Henderson Conference on Church and Ministry.

11:00 a.m. “Engaging Science in the Life of Your Congregation” Science and technology are integral to modern western life, yet Christians are often perceived to be opposed to science. How can this stereotype be corrected? What could it look like to engage science more effectively in local churches? Science can enhance the church’s ministry in evangelism, discipleship, environmental stewardship, and service to the poor. Most of all, science can enrich our worship of the God who created it all.

2:00 p.m. “Christian Perspectives on Creation, Design, Evolution, and Human Origins” Christians today hold a range of views on origins. The most prominent debates are between young earth creationism and atheistic evolution; this talk will review other positions, including old earth creationism, intelligent design, and evolutionary creationism. Come for an introduction to the key scientific evidence around origins from astronomy, geology, paleontology, and genetics, and how it all intersects with the Bible and human significance.

4:00 p.m. “God and the Universe” The psalmist wrote, “The heavens declare the glory of God.”  What is modern astronomy revealing about God? The discoveries of the last 100 years have transformed our understanding of the universe and its expansion, and even introduced the possibility that our universe is part of a much larger multiverse. Come for a tour of a universe, from extrasolar planets to baby stars, from galaxies to dark matter, all seen through the eyes of faith.
