Pray for Tom’s fruitful engagement in the 65th Annual Meeting of the American Scientific Affiliation: Science, Faith, & Public Policy (Washington D.C., July 30 - August 2). He’s attending to
- connect with ESN members
- delve into ethical topics of personal and professional concern, more below
- interview speakers
- invite participants to become involved with InterVarsity through a display table and a Graduate & Faculty Ministry Reception (Sunday, August 1, 8:30 PM, Atrium) with his colleagues Terry Morrison and Dwight Schwartz
- wrestle with how ESN might host/contribute to discussions on Science, Faith, & Public Policy.
What a joy it will be to see, hear, and learn more about the beauty/complexity of creation and our interaction with/care for it. To God be the glory!
No doubt I will be reminded of my high school gifted program classes/internships with the F&M geology lab and undergrad years as biology major at Grove City College, not to mention the 24/7 scientific community with which I interacted at Carnegie Mellon University/Pitt. Hope to come across some friends from these and other campuses.
Note: Since beginning ministry at PSU-Hershey Medical Center, my interest in BioMedical Ethics and the Call to Care has been strongly renewed. I'm looking forward to how BioMedical Ethics (in addition to Creation Care) will be explored in the coming days. I'll be exploring resources/materials to use in preparation for Dennis Hollinger's 9/26 Christian Scholar Series presenations on Christian Ethics in Life & Death and Challenging sexual ethics issues Christians, http://www.etownbic.org/hollinger/.
