Note: Due to technical difficulties beyond our control, the video quality in this recording was unfortunately below the standards of BioLogos. However, the dialogue is informative, powerful, and grace-filled. We hope you’re able to enjoy this fantastic virtual event!

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, “science” has become a battleground. There’s an increase in polarization and misinformation around COVID-19, even in Christian circles, and it is costing lives.

At BioLogos, we believe science is a gift from God, equipping the church for this pandemic. We hosted a virtual event featuring Christians who are using science to care for others in this challenging year. Leading the conversation was author Philip Yancey, whose best-selling books explore the Christian faith and the healing work of modern medicine.

Yancey was joined by:

  • Julia Wattacheril, a Columbia University physician scientist who helped on the front lines of the COVID outbreak in New York City
  • Carol Bremer-Bennett, U.S. Director of World Renew, the lead Christian relief agency serving the Navajo and Zuni peoples hard hit by the pandemic
  • Deborah Haarsma, president of BioLogos and author of A Christian Statement on Science for Pandemic Times

A special thanks to The Dave and Carol Van Andel Family Foundation for sponsoring this event.
