Science & Faith in San Diego: ASA 2022 Recap

This past summer, students and faculty from TWU attended the annual meeting of the American Scientific Affiliation in San Diego. The theme of this science & Christianity conference was “What Is A Human? Flourishing as a Person.” The students will reflect on their experience, the faculty will give summaries of their talks, and everyone can engage in Q&A and general discussion. Next summer’s conference is in Toronto, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Scientific & Christian Affiliation.

Faculty attending this recap evening are Drs. Myron Penner (philosophy), Arnold Sikkema (physics), and Dennis Venema (biology), and students attending are biology majors Spencer Funk (also a chemistry major), Laura Kelly, and Karissa Perry. Come hear about your fellow students’ adventures with this international science-and-faith organization.

Faculty will give very brief versions of their talks, and attendees are welcome to watch the full recordings at the links below. Refreshments will be provided.
