What are the intersections and shared pathways of science and spirituality, of physics and faith, of biology and belief? Belief in a loving God may be nice if you have it, but what if you aren't wired that way? What if your main mode of being is by thinking, wondering, and questioning? Who says the only way to encounter the holy is through faith? Can people connect via the mind, or intellectualism, or reasoning? A panel of local scientists and theologians, including Dr. Arri Eisen from Emory's Center for Ethics and Pastor James Brewer-Calvert from First Christian Church of Decatur, will explore and offer a wide range of insights and offerings in a safe space for open dialogue.
Parking is available in the Church parking lot.
