God and the Real World: Faith & Science

God and the Real World: Faith & Science

Tuesday, August 10th, 7:00 pm in the Parlor Courtyard

Join us for the second in our series of explorations of how God and our world intersect, wrapped in a casual worship service with communion. Each month we will share experiences, reflect on what they teach us, learn more, and choose some actions we will try in the coming month. This will be part worship, part discussion, so come ready to share.

This month’s topic is Faith & Science.
