BioLogos President Deb Haarsma will be speaking at St. David’s School at a free, public event on September 27, 2023.
We live in an amazing world. Science is making astounding discoveries about our universe, our planet, and our bodies. For hundreds of years, Christians have seen science as the study of the handiwork of God and in harmony with the Bible. Yet in our polarized culture today, science and faith have ended up on opposite sides. A large and increasing fraction of Christian young people see “science” as a cause for doubt, and people of no faith see “science” as a barrier to faith. It doesn’t have to be this way!
God invites us to explore his World and his Word, and we can do this without compromising scientific accuracy or watering down scripture. Instead of making secondary issues into culture war battles, Christians can model gracious dialogue in places where we disagree and celebrate the core of our shared faith where we agree. In many of the challenges facing our world today –climate change, AI, gene-editing, healthcare disparities – rigorous science is essential. But science alone cannot provide all the answers or show us how to follow Christ. We need both Christ-centered faith and rigorous science, working hand in hand, to bring human flourishing.
This event is hosted by St. David’s School.
