Dr Ruth Bancewicz will speak to us on Tuesday 18th October, 8pm at Lindisfarne House.
Dr Bancewicz is a Senior Research Fellow at the Faraday Institute, Cambridge, which is dedicated to studying the interactions and common ground between science and religious belief. Her background is in Genetics and she has also published books on science and belief.
When we look at the natural world around us, it can give us a sense of awe and wonder. For Christians, this may feed into worship. So what about those Christians who study the natural world, or biology, for a living? It will not give them proof of God’s existence, but what they see in creation reinforces their beliefs, turns their attention to the character of God, and reminds them that the world has been made for a purpose. This talk will go beyond the usual debates about science and religion, drawing on the work of successful scientists who are also people of faith. Dr Bancewicz will focus on celebrating creation, appreciating its intricacies and fruitfulness, and sharing how discoveries about the living world can hint at questions of meaning that go beyond science.
