Register for Mid-Winter Convocation 2018

Since the Age of Enlightenment, there have been tensions between the fields of science and the world’s religions. Today, scientific language dominates public conversation on topics like medicine and technology, and research shows a divide in how people think about faith and science. Why do people separate their religious beliefs from their scientific knowledge? How can Christian leaders help to bridge this gap?

Scholars, scientists and pastors will come together to discuss these questions and more at the 2018 Mid-Winter Convocation, “Faith and Science,” held January 24-26 at Luther Seminary.

Enjoy the following keynotes and choose from more than a dozen workshops.
