Creating Opportunities for Dialogue: Issues of Science and Faith
Southwestern Ontario Chapter
University of Western Ontario
As a local chapter of the Canadian Scientific Christian Affiliation, this group is a professional association of women and men in science who share a common Christian faith and a commitment to the integrity of science. The organizing committee of this effort is comprised of local scientists, theologians, and clergy bringing expertise and scholarly interest to the various topics to be explored. Issues such as cosmology and origins, evolution and creation, bioethics, neuroscience and the soul, stewardship and the environment, physics and philosophy, morality and psychology, and knowledge and belief are at the forefront of the considerations cultivated through group activities. The society offers a combination of public lectures, seminar presentations, and meetings for review and discussion of topics of critical interest to specific target groups. Providing multiple forums for conferences, workshops, seminars and discussions on a variety of themes, the group is targeting high school, college and university students, faculty of local colleges and universities, area clergy, and the local community for outreach.
