Science and Faith Conference


Here is an interesting looking conference taking place at Westminster Theological Seminary that some may want to take advantage of.  I don’t come down in the same place theologically as all of the participants but I am sure that it will be an informative and edifying time. Here is a blurb:

Are science and faith at war? Does science undermine or corroborate belief in God? Does faith suppress or inspire scientific research? Explore these questions and more at a series of regional two-day conferences sponsored by Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture. Designed especially for pastors, seminary students, and other church leaders (educators, elders, deacons, board members), each conference will explore similar topics and themes and feature nationally prominent speakers. Each conference also will include information about practical resources for use in churches, church schools, adult education classes, and small groups.
