Society on Science and Faith at Valley Forge
Valley Forge Christian College
Launching an “enduring forum for promoting the constructive engagement of issues at the nexus of theology and the natural sciences”, this society invites academics, administrators, teachers, students, professionals, a broad representation of congregations, and the general public to join in public lectures, symposia, workshops, and the use of video and web resources. Development of this interfaith, interdisciplinary forum is supported through invitations to a diversity of local houses of worship, and medical, science, and industry professionals. In this way, the entire society benefits by expanding, and enriching its own view of the science-faith dialogue. A bi-annual newsletter promotes development of membership and outreach to potential members. Bi-monthly meetings of the society include specific topical and book discussions, based on timely developments in science and theology such as quantum mechanics, post modernism and God; evolution and Intelligent Design theory; transformational interaction of science and faith; and scientific and religious perspectives on bioethical issues. Valley Forge Christian College supplies matching funds.
