A Three-Week Bible Study Course with Rev. Dr. Van Herd Beginning Sunday, February 22, 2015
Many of you will remember the Rev. Dr. Van Herd, our shared Minister of Adult Education, who served as interim organist here last year. In addition to church work, Van is now an Associate Research Scientist and Reactor Operator in Nuclear Engineering at UT. He is also a lecturer in Mathematics, as well as in History of Science.
These special sessions will explore the relationships among science, technology, and the Christian faith, using Sara Maitland’s transformational book, A Joyful Theology: Creation, Commitment and an Awesome God. Van has already begun this series with our ecumenical partner, University Christian Church, and the study has been received with great enthusiasm.
The author, Sara Maitland, is the spouse of a Church of England vicar and is rooted in a scientific family. She is an artist, poet, and novelist who writes with imagination, creativity, and conviction about her vision of the awe-inspiring interconnectivity of science and theology.
