Bridge-builders of faith, science, & culture.

We are cultivating a stronger church through meaningful dialogue with mainstream science.

Time for a more productive conversation

God’s creation is amazing—it beckons us to explore and discover. But the last century has seen an unhelpful pattern of the church disengaging from science. Science for the Church equips Christian leaders and scientists of faith with content, resources, networks, and events in pursuit of a day when science is no longer a barrier to faith, but instead augments the work of the church.

Genesis 1 Through the Eyes of a Rabbi

Genesis 1 Through the Eyes of a Rabbi

So if we look at Genesis as poetry, not science, then we don’t need to do mental gymnastics to fit the square peg of Genesis 1 into the round hole of Big Bang cosmology or natural selection. Instead, we look at the words themselves, their style, and the word choices.

So Lonely

So Lonely

This is why the Surgeon General issued the advisory. “With more than one in five adults and more than one in three young adults living with a mental illness in the U.S., addressing loneliness and isolation is critical in order to fully address the mental health crisis in America.” I see a new headline about the crisis of isolation every couple weeks—whether it involves clergy, young people, older adults, or the general public. With each one, I begin to hear the “So Lonely” earworm and then wonder how the church can help.

We Are All Children of God

As we continue to explore the intersection of faith and science, it becomes evident that the quest for racial equality and justice requires confronting both conscious and unconscious biases. Black liberation theology challenges us to rethink traditional narratives and to recognize the divine activity in the struggle for social justice.
