Creating a Safe Space for Pastors to Talk about Science and Faith

Our project is to provide a safe forum for dialogue between pastors and scientists who are also believers. We critically examined perspectives offered by science and faith in an intensive short course held at Gordon College. Throughout the week, Bob Stains, Jr. and John Sarrouf, of the Public Conversations Project, established and modeled rules for dialogue. Feedback indicated that the pastors developed greater confidence in their ability to handle conflicts between science and faith.
