Creation in Crisis: Science and Theology Respond
One-Day Digital Conference: In Review
The Creation in Crisis: Science and Theology Respond Conference focused on the urgent environmental crisis facing humanity and our entire planet. We were privileged to welcome Nalini Nadkarni, Cornelia Mutel, and Larry Rasmussen as our keynote presenters and panelists. Each brought insightful perspectives on the ethical challenges we face in responding to this global crisis.
WTS Dean Nessan shared of our time together: “Something amazing came together at the Creation in Crisis conference! Forced to adapt to delivery by livestreaming under the conditions of pandemic, instead of cancelling the WTS team succeeded in providing the daylong conference to grateful participants from across the country. The presentations were contextual related to the pandemic, fascinating to the participants, substantive in scientific content, practical in providing real-to-life examples, and engaging with calls to action for climate justice.”
This one-day digital conference was offered as a result of Wartburg’s grant award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to participate in the Science for Seminaries project of the AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion (DoSER) Program.
