What’s God got to do with it? Evolution, Faith, and the Miracle of Life

On Thursday, October 1, the BioLogos Foundation and the Newbigin House of Studies hosted Dr. Jeffrey Schloss at the Century Club of California.  The evening began with a reception featuring music from jazz musician Adam Schulman. Dr. Schloss lectured on new findings in biology that re-illuminate deep harmony between faith and science.  Affirming rather than compromising the conclusions of science and the insights of scripture, these discoveries enrich our understanding of human uniqueness, the embodied capacities and limitation for our flourishing, and the God whose purpose it is that we might have life, and have it in greater abundance.
Thank you to everyone who came and made it a wonderful evening.  We look forward to hosting more events like this in the future.
