Exploring Faith and Science - Begins July 23

Sundays, July 23 - August 27, 9:15 AM* – What might the laws of nature tell us about its Creator?  Is science in conflict with Scripture?  If so, since when?  And what can scientific techniques like carbon dating tell us about the age of the Earth?  In this summer Bible class, we will explore the relationship between faith and reason and apparent conflicts between Christianity and modern science.  The course will be team-taught by science faculty from Wisconsin Lutheran College: Dr. Rob Balza (biology), Dr. Kerry Kuehn (physics) and Dr. Dan Ebeling (chemistry).  *Note: there will be no class on Sunday, August 6.
