Former BioLogos president Darrel Falk and BioLogos advisor Greg Cootsona will speak at Upper House’s “Science for the Church: Finding Common Ground” on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 in Madison, Wisconsin.
“Upper House is partnering with Science for the Church, a new national initiative that is building a movement of Christian communities using science to invigorate the church.
Can engaging science in your ministry be beneficial? Can bringing science to your church bring renewal? Too often, science is perceived to be a barrier to faith, but in fact, scientists and churches have much to learn from each other. Join us for a half-day workshop to help Madison-area ministry professionals, church leaders, and scientists correct several misperceptions around faith and science and consider ways that a more thoughtful engagement with science can actually strengthen communities of faith.
In addition to hearing from practicing scientists, pastors, and veterans of faith and science integration, join us for breakout sessions to tackle questions like:
• Why should the church support science as a vocation?
• How do we better engage emerging adults on the crucial issues of science and technology?
• Where do we find tools and strategies for engaging science in our churches?”
