There is a pervasive if misguided myth that science and religion are locked in inescapable conflict. The Rev. Joseph Wolyniak, the Episcopal chaplain at Princeton University and husband of our Associate Rector, Liz Costello, will help us examine how science emerged within a religious worldview historically and how both the sciences and religious traditions play a vital role in our understanding of God’s creation—and our call to transformation within it.
Where is God? Can we actually expect God to show up? Is God just? Is God a liar? By asking questions like this, the book of Psalms can be brutally honest about the challenges of maintaining faith in God. Old Testament Professor and prolific author Pete Enns will help us see how such honesty is an expression of faith rather than evidence of faithlessness.
