Taking Einstein to Youth Ministry: Faith, Science and the Faith Formation of Young People

Deep Dive by Andrew Root | For many, the scientific story about a massively expanding, 14-billion-year-old universe with black holes and supernovas has made belief in a personal God difficult. Science seems to engage with what we can see, touch and measure, while the Christian faith asks us to believe in what ancient texts tell us about an immeasurable spiritual experience. How should Christians engage the relationship between faith and science? What does youth ministry have to do with Einstein and Darwin? In this seminar, Luther Seminary’s Andrew Root will lead an important conversation about the relationship between youth ministry, faith and scientific theories.
