The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of God's hands
. . . There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. -- Psalm 19:1-4
Science and theology are often mismatched bedfellows. Science dominates the university environment while theology exists only at its edges. Science investigates the visible and measurable while faith relates to things unseen. Nevertheless, they share an engagement with many topics that relate to wonder: where have we come from, who are humans, what are the dimensions and scope of the universe, why is nature both perfect and flawed at the same time? Science and faith both elicit the reaction of awe in the face of nature's complexity and liveliness. This conference examines the interface between theology and science from the dimension of wonder.
