Reopen Update – November
Click for the latest update from the ReOpen Team.
We simulcast our online service Sundays at 10am. We miss seeing your faces in person, but we can still gather in this digital space! You can join us live at 10am, here, facebook, or youtube with others and for live chat. If you’re more of a sleep-in-til-noon kinda person and want to stream the service later or even with your Small Group or family later in the week, you can any time after 11am on Sunday.
Past services are on our YouTube Channel: United YouTube.
The week of November 22…
“A Priest and a Physicist Walk Into a Bar…” a new series which explores the (supposed) conflict between faith and science. We’ll look at the origin of the assumption that faith and science are at odds with one another, the question of God, and the supernatural.
We all have heard people say that faith and science are at war with each other. There is an assumption that science is about being rational and faith is about being irrational. Of course there are points of tension, but overall they should work together, with one taking over where the other leads. This matters because it is this mistaken belief that keeps people from taking Christianity seriously, and causes many people to leave.
Case in point: 97% of scientists believe humans evolved, but only 24% of evangelicals believe this. This is why there is a perception that faith is anti-intellectual. The number one reason given by young people who leave the church is this disconnect, there is a perception that if you’re going to be a Christian you have to check your brain at the door.
So, how can science & faith get along? Join us for a quick 2-week series beginning Nov. 22.
