This 8-week class will explore the theme of science and Christian faith from an Anglican perspective, using insights from contemporary Anglicans, from the Church Fathers, and from Paul Julienne, the class facilitator, who is a long-time Truro member and a retired physicist.
Truro firmly embraces its Anglican identity, and many Anglicans figures are doing outstanding work in this area. The “Church Fathers” are Christian teachers and thinkers in the centuries after Jesus, who developed excellent ways to guide us in thinking about the natural world and in faithful living as followers of Jesus.
The basis thesis of the series is that there is nothing in the full range of the natural science—physical, biological, or bio-medical—that necessarily conflicts with a robust Christian theology centered on the person Jesus of Nazareth understood as being fully God and fully human. For in Christ, “all things hold together.” (Col. 1:17)
