Covalence for October 2018: Science communication, environmental sustainability and faith

By Karsten Würth/Public domain via Unsplash

This month we look at several key faith and science issues. We explore in this issue concerns surrounding science communication and environmental sustainability and faith.

The main feature this month is a moving story of how a retired physicist, Paul Arveson, is working with non-profit groups to put his Christian faith to work in providing solar powered stoves in Africa.

The issue of sustainability is one that is being discussed in more congregations these days and in university classrooms, including at Yale University. The Zygon Center for Religion and Science in Chicago is also holding this month a special screening of a film on the topic of ecological concern along the southern border of the Great Lakes.

There is much more to learn about ecological destruction and humanity’s role. The focus on environmental justice issues a clear understanding of how the science works is important. That makes the new guide for communication about science by scientists and exciting prospect, which we cover in this month’s news section.

Are there any events coming up in your congregation related to faith and science? Let us know so we can share your story!
