Grame UMC- Science & Religion: Ancient and Modern Wisdom Meet

Posted by on Jul 31, 2014 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

A free, 6-week course led by Dave Hickman and Todd Noren-Hentz

Wednesdays @ 6pm, August 13th thru October 1st in Fellowship Hall Room 1

This course is intended to give you some insights into the processes by which God’s creation may have occurred. We’ll examine reasons for tensions between these two worlds, some of the great contributors to each field, and gain deeper insights into both worlds. Being a whiz in science is not needed. No text is required and read-ahead handouts will be provided.

Participants can register online or at Grace UMC.  Participants can expect 30 minutes to an hour of recommended reading per week, but classes are designed to provide value to those who are unable to complete the weekly reading as well.

For more information contact Dave Hickman at daglhi@bellsouth.net or (256) 527-9721 or Todd Noren-Hentz attoddnorenhentz@graceumchsv.org or (256) 430-0003
