Science and Religious symposium

October 1, 2021 - October 2, 2021

Palmer Theological Seminary would like to welcome you to a two-day symposium on science and religion on our St. David’s campus at Eastern University. Admission is free and the event will be livestreamed as well.

The symposium comes as part of Palmer’s selection to participate in the Science for Seminaries project. The project is made possible by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) through their Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program, in partnership with the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).

Highlighting the work of professors, scientists, chaplains, nurses, students, and activists in the fields of astronomy, medicine, and ecotheology, each session will feature a student essay contest, a panel of local experts, and a special keynote speaker.

This event will be of value to local ministers as well as their congregations. If you have any questions email the director, Rev. Zack Jackson at zjackson@eastern.edu.
