Language of God has hosted many great guests already in its first season but as hard as we try, we can’t always get to all your questions. So while we’re between seasons, we thought we’d open the phone lines. Jim Stump, host of Language of God, and a few BioLogos staff members sit down to try and wrestle with some of the questions we received. Here’s their conversation.
David Buller is Program Manager at BioLogos, where he currently manages the BioLogos Voices speakers bureau and oversees planning for BioLogos national conferences and other major events. Prior to coming to BioLogos, David was a Program Associate in the Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion program at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Washington, DC. At AAAS, he helped lead and plan projects working with scientists, seminary leaders, pastors, and other organizations. He is a producer on “Science: The Wide Angle,” a AAAS science video series tailored for use in religious education. After completing his BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Bob Jones University, David earned an MA in Theological Studies, Religion and Science Emphasis, from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. While in Chicago, David worked as a student coordinator on various events and symposia at the Zygon Center for Religion and Science. He is a Fellow of the American Scientific Affiliation, having previously served as Student and Early Career Representative to the organization's Executive Council. Kathryn Applegate is Program Director at BioLogos. While working on her PhD in computational cell biology at Scripps Research (La Jolla, CA), she became passionate about building bridges between the church and the scientific community. In 2010, she joined the BioLogos staff where she has the privilege of writing, speaking, and working with a wide variety of scholars and educators to develop new science and faith resources. Kathryn co-edited with Jim Stump How I Changed My Mind About Evolution (InterVarsity Press, 2016). She is currently leading the development of Integrate, a new science and faith curriculum for home educators and teachers at Christian schools. She is excited about equipping parents and teachers to raise up the next generation of Christian students who approach science with wonder, curiosity, perseverance, and wisdom. Kathryn and her family enjoy exploring the beaches and state parks of Michigan and are helping to plant a new PCA church in Grand Rapids.
