The Clergy Letter Project is sponsoring the Religion and Science Weekend, February 10-12, 2023, with the theme “Mystery, Awe and Wonder in Religion and Science.”
The members of The Clergy Letter Project voted to adopt the theme, according to Michael Zimmerman, the founder of the website and creator of the Evolution Weekend.
“I believe that this theme demonstrates not only the concordance of religion and science but also the excitement that can arise when we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us,” Zimmerman wrote. “Both religion and science can lead us to this place and when we arrive, we are able to reach beyond ourselves to others and help create a more welcoming environment.”
One of our Lutheran Alliance for Faith, Science and Technology board members, Rev. Bruce Booher, runs a website devoted to the role of mystery, awe and wonder in faith and science, appropriately titled “Mystery and Awe.” Booher has set up a page on his website to highlight many helpful resources for anyone who plans to participate in the 2023 Religion and Science Weekend.
