“In Him All Things Hold Together”

Integrating Knowledge, Pursuing Vocation, Building Up the Body

Saturday, March 19, 2022 | Online only

Free of charge 

The epistle to the Colossians presents a stunning cosmic vision of the coherence of all things. In Christ, all things are created and all things hold together.  Emboldened by this compelling Christological perception, Christians throughout the ages have sought to engage with the best learning of their times and places for the sake of the church’s continuing witness in the world in the recognition that all truth is ultimately God’s truth.  This posture of robust intellectual engagement has been threatened in recent years in evangelical circles by suspicions surrounding the practices of contemporary scholarship and questions about the relationship of faith and science.  As a result, many people in the pews have been left unsupported in their vocations, pastors find themselves unsure where to turn for reliable information, and the public witness of the church has been compromised.

Given these challenges, Providence Theological Seminary presents a one-day symposium funded by the Science for Seminaries project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion.

This symposium aspires to:

  1. promote dialogue that integrates science and faith;
  2. serve the church by stimulating the rediscovery of the intellectual courage of the Christians who have gone before us in the confidence that “all things hold together in Christ”;
  3. support laypeople in living out their vocations in an increasingly scientific and technological world;
  4. equip pastors to discern reliable sources of information and enter into meaningful engagement with contemporary science

― all for the sake of building up the body of Christ and forwarding its witness in the world.

Speakers

The Symposium will feature three experts in the fields of science and Christian Faith, followed by a panel of Providence professors. Learn more!
