Princeton Theological Seminary’s Institute for Youth Ministry produced a blog series on engaging science in the practice of youth ministry.
This book aims to help churches and, specifically, youth pastors have a better conversation about science and faith.
All Christians, including high school students, are capable of being and becoming science-informed theologians through reflecting on their experiences with God in their own lives and engaging in conversation with scripture, reason, and the people and traditions within their faith communities.
I desperately wanted to pursue a life of science, but thought that I couldn’t because of my faith.
When church becomes the one place that’s either silent or hostile about science, young people learn the implicit lesson that it’s not just the church that can’t handle their tough questions. God can’t either. The way we interact with science provides young people with a template for how God views science. So we have an opportunity. In our engagement with science, will we lean in and lead or lose out and be led?
