In The Spirituality of Science: What Christians Can Learn From Scientists, part of the Q Society Room experience, your group will explore the relationship between science and faith, and you'll discuss how all Christians (non-scientists included) should be mindful, rather than uninformed or even fearful, of these issues.
Following the example of the "Society Rooms" of the late 1600's and the Clapham Circle of the early 1800's, Q Society Rooms are designed to gather small groups of leaders to dialogue, learn, and work together to explore how to express the Christian faith in a post-Christian culture. A Participant's Book, Leader's DVD and Guide, and a group project complete the Q Society experience, which will challenge every participant's innermost beliefs and pre-conceived ideas about life, faith, the world, and cultural responsibility.
In The Spirituality of Science: What Christians Can Learn From Scientists, host Gabe Lyons and DVD presenters Francis Collins, Catherine Crouch, and Louie Giglio explore the difficult questions of faith and science: Is the idea of God simply a delusion and religion the main obstacle to the advancement of civilization? Is science itself anti-faith? Does evolution threaten the very tenets of Christianity? Doesn't the creation debate highlight the enmity between science and faith? Lyons and Norton Herbst then help you and the group explore - through short articles by noted authors, transcripts from Q Talks (included in the Leader's DVD and Guide), five meetings to discuss important topics related to the overall theme, and thought-provoking questions - the relationship between science and faith, and you'll discuss how all Christians (non-scientists included) should be mindful of these issues.
