“Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord, your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones!”
– Psalm 89:5
When the Hubble Telescope launched in 1990, it opened the world’s eyes to the vastness and beauty of outer space. For the first time, scientists saw what black holes looked like, watched as stars formed, and plumbed the depths of a galaxy. Deep space exploration revealed wonders about the created world but also challenged assumptions about the age of the universe and other mysteries, questions which at times, have made some people of faith uneasy.
The tension between the work of scientists and their faith communities is not limited to astronomy. Scientists in other fields describe being met with suspicion as if their work was a threat to long-standing beliefs of the Christian faith. But what if it didn’t have to be that way?
What if the work of scientists could enrich and expand our understanding of God?
What if scientists could lead us to greater wonder and worship?
Join Denver Institute for Faith & Work and keynote speaker Jennifer Wiseman, astronomer and astrophysicist, for an evening exploring the work of scientists as a gift to the church. Panelists Philip Yancey, author of best-selling books including Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, and Father Joseph Wolyniak, Associate Rector at Christ Church Denver will discuss the implications of integrating faith and scientific inquiry for individual believers and the local church.
