A Great Way to Start a Great Conversation
It isn't too late to join the BioLogos Book Club. Our content team has been busy finalizing the supplemental materials for the chapters that will help springboard discussions into further discovery. With the multiple groups already formed, supplemental materials now available, and over 150 downloads of our discussion questions, we are prepared for our next online forum scheduled for March 7. The launch of our online forum has provided another avenue to join the discussion with others focused around a single book, The Language of God. Contributions to the online forum ranged from thoughtful observations such as:
Science and faith have developed as ideas partially, though not entirely, independently. This independence means that there will be tension between them just as any object that has forces pulling in different directions will exhibit tension. However, the tension need not be debilitating. Instead, that tension means that the center of gravity between the two is always in flux and both need to be continuously responding to that.
to discerning questions like:
Was Collins’ work on the human genome affected by his faith (I mean the actual results; not the way he went about his work, if that distinction is fair to make)? What do you (or others) think this means for understanding the relationship between them or the attempts at harmonization?
The content team wants to find out how the book club is working and what they can do to improve communication with its members. Book club participants will be asked for their thoughts and opinions on an upcoming survey. We are striving to improve our dialogue and we are excited about the conversation that has been taking place embracing the harmony between science and biblical faith.
