We’ll get right to it: Young people today are departing the faith in historic numbers as the church is either unwilling or unable to address their questions on science and faith. BioLogos is hosting those tough conversations. Not with anger, but with grace. Not with a simplistic position to earn credibility on the left or the right, but a message that is informed, faithful, and hopeful.
Although voices on both sides are loud and extreme, we are breaking through. But as a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of donors like you to continue this challenging work. Your tax deductible gift today will help us continue to counter the polarizing narratives of today with a message that is informed, hopeful, and faithful.
We live in confusing times. Between being awash in data, pummeled with misinformation, surrounded by spin, and addled by an outrage industry, even the most discerning can find it difficult to know what to trust, who to listen to, and how to sift conflicting information streams. Increasingly, we are divided not merely along the lines of difference over values, but over reality. How, in the midst of so much vehement disagreement and alternative facts, do we apprehend what is real and reliable? What or whom should we trust? If living wisely requires rightly discerning reality, how do we learn to seek and see what is true?
On July 19, we invite you to join us for an Evening Conversation with geneticist and former director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Francis Collins on “Science, Faith, Trust and Truth,” to explore ways of addressing our epistemic crisis and learning how to develop discernment of and desire for what is real in the midst of confusion and conflict. The evening will begin with drinks and appetizers, followed by remarks and a time for audience questions.
This event is held in partnership with: This event is made possible through the support of BioLogos and The Church of the Advent. It is made possible through the support of Templeton Religion Trust.
