University of Indianapolis Professor of Biology Dr. John Langdon and former microbiologist/current pastor of Cross and Crown Lutheran Church Rev. Christine Wulff will discuss the intersection of faith and science at the Center for Faith and Vocation, 4615 Sunset Ave., beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23.
The event is free and food will be served.
Advance registration is available online at: events.SignUp4.net/engagescience. On-site registration will be available only if the event does not fill up in advance.
Featured speakers will address some of the apparent conflicts between faith and science and how they have navigated these conflicts in their own lives and work; they will also tackle some of the most pressing ethical issues facing the realm of science and dialogue about how different faith perspectives could helpfully weigh in on such matters.
There will be plenty of time for questions, so participants are welcome to come with whatever issues they think are most important to address.
Langdon studies human origins, human biology, and the history of science. He is the author of four books and numerous academic papers. Currently a member of Servants of Christ Lutheran Church, he has engaged students and fellow parishioners in issues of bioethics and the relationship between evolution and faith.
Christine Wulff began her vocational journey by working in several laboratories. After obtaining her bachelor’s and then doctoral degree from Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., Wulff was an active researcher at the University of Kentucky for more than a decade in both the biochemistry and the microbiology departments. By 2011 that same vocational journey led her to complete her Masters of Divinity degree at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, SC. She now serves as the pastor of Cross and Crown Lutheran Church in Indianapolis.
