Quincy, Massachusetts

A faculty based initiative; the Polkinghorne Society includes membership from Eastern Nazarene University, Boston University, Gordon College, and Harvard University. A variety of disciplines are represented in the initial core membership including theology, astronomy, physics, history, chemistry, English, religious studies, education, and biology. The society sponsors programs and events for faculty, students, and the public to engage in interdisciplinary considerations and promote dialogue between science and religion. The faculty reading group meets monthly to discuss the works of such seminal thinkers in the field as John Polkinghorne, William Shea, and Ernan McMullin. The authors are then invited to meet the society members in person, lead classroom discussions at the college, and present widely publicized public lectures. Outreach includes newspapers, radio, television, email lists, and a resource website. Matching fund commitment is made by Eastern Nazarene College and the Historical Society.
