Organized by Upper House, Science for the Church
BioLogos Advisors Elaine Howard Ecklund and Greg Cootsona along with Cleve V. Tinsley IV will present “Science, Race, and the Church: A Conversation about Repentance and Redemption” with Upper House on December 2, 2020. This is a virtual event.
“American Christians have a complex relationship with two of the dominant conversations in American society: science and race. This is especially true when many Christians have compromised their willingness to stand for biblical truth and justice in lieu of other priorities. At the same time, the church has helped to advance a countercultural vision of equality and unity in Christ. The story is messy because of our unique history and ongoing confusion about how best to follow the gospel’s call for justice, repentance, and the hope of redemption.
Join us as Upper House and Science for the Church host a conversation among three Christian scholars of religion and science who will bring new insights to this complex issue. We will discuss how contemporary Christians view science, and how science and faith might address racial injustice.:
