We are one day away from Providence Theological Seminary’s Science and Faith Symposium, “In Him All Things Hold Together”: Integrating Knowledge, Pursuing Vocation, Building up the Body. Interest has been building over the past week with articles appearing in the Winnipeg Free Press and on the website of CHVN 95.1 radio. The latter includes the video of a conversation I had with radio host Sylvia St. Cyr. I am looking forward to co-hosting tomorrow’s proceedings along with my colleague Dr. Rebecca Dielschneider and welcoming our accomplished speakers and panelists. There is still time to register for the symposium here.
I am serving as the Project Lead for a Science for Seminaries Seed Grant that Providence Theological Seminary has been awarded by AAAS-DoSER. As part of the grant, we are hosting a Faith and Science Symposium on Saturday, March 19. Due to uncertainties surrounding the pandemic, we have been forced to host the event entirely online. While we will miss gathering in person, this does have two distinct advantages. First, because we are meeting online, we have been able to assemble a strong international lineup of speakers. Second, because the Symposium is online, you can participate from wherever in the world you happen to be located. See the poster below and visit prov.ca/scienceandfaith for more information.
I was recently interviewed by John Longhurst of the Winnipeg Free Press about the Science for Seminaries Seed Grant that Providence Theological Seminary has recently received. Overall, it’s a positive piece, although I was slightly misrepresented on one point. I mentioned that Augustine, Aquinas, and Calvin were all interested in and acquainted with the best science of their day, not that they were scientists per se. You can read the full article here.
I am incredibly grateful for the breadth, depth, and overall quality of the forthcoming issue of our re-imagined theological journal Didaskalia on the theme of worship. You can view the full table of contents below I am also pleased to announce that we have made special arrangements to make the issue available to all interested readers for the mere cost of postage. You can sign up to receive the first issue at this special promotional rate here. Continue reading Worship Issue of Didaskalia – Special Promotion
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything; recovering from a back injury has necessitated that I limit the amount of time I spend in front of the computer. I thought I’d break my silence with the text of a sermon I preached in the Providence Community Chapel yesterday during the school’s Week of Prayer. Perhaps the sermon can in some way be as edifying for you to read as it was for me to preach.
