Science and Faith Program
Ithaca, New York
In partnership with other local science-faith organizations in the vicinity of Cornell University, this group aims to mentor students pursuing careers in science through active inquiry in integrating faith and academic investigation. A reading group for students and local clergy meets bi-weekly for discussion centering on areas of interest. Regular visits from Cornell scientists to share perspectives and expertise will enhance these considerations. A resource-rich website will link to articles and other online resources to expose participating members and the academic and surrounding community to the larger body of emerging literature. An on-site library of current books and journals is also made available for further reflection. Sponsorship of visiting scholars – notable thinkers in the field of science and faith – and subsequent well-advertised public lectures, seminars, and social events will round-out the work of the group inviting further public participation. Chesterton House provides matching funds.
