Palmer Theological Seminary in St. David’s will host a two-day symposium on science and religion, Oct. 1-2, at 2 to 5 PM. The seminary was selected to participate in the Science for Seminaries project, made possible by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in partnership with the Association of Theological Schools (ATS). Admission is free, and it will be livestreamed.
Part of AAAS’ Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program, the weekend symposium will include highly regarded keynote speakers and panels of local professionals addressing the intersection of science and religion in society. The two sessions will highlight the work of professors in the fields of astronomy, physics, medicine, biblical studies and ecotheology and will feature a student essay contest.
Local faith communities are encouraged to participate, along with students and faculty. Learn more…
