Call for Contributions:

Southern California Christians in Science invites contributed 20-minute talks, posters, and panel discussions. Submissions may address any topic dealing with the intersection between Christianity and science and technology, although sessions on the following topics related to the conference theme are especially encouraged:

Faith and learning in the Classroom, Faith and Learning for the Church. Christian educators and students in science, theology, and other disciplines share their best classroom lessons on science and faith.

New Science, Ancient Faith. Contributions should explore the relevance of developments in astronomy, genomics, neuroscience, and other research frontiers for Christians.

Views from the pulpit, Views from the Lab. Contributions will examine how science’s picture of the cosmos can inform, enrich, and create tensions for Christian discipleship and church life.

Science, Origins, and the Church: Approaches, Opportunities, Developments, and Pitfalls. This session will seek to clarify the state of debate over issues related to the origin of the cosmos, Earth, life, and humanity; suggest new approaches and directions; offer warnings; and otherwise explore the impact and relevance of the origins discussion for the church in North America.

Undergraduates and beginning graduate student contributions are welcome and instructors that address science and religion issues in their courses are especially encouraged to invite their students to participate. Submissions from pastors interested in the role science-faith dialogue plays in the life of the church are also encouraged.
