Samford University’s Center for Science and Religion will host a free interdenominational workshop for pastors May 19 to explore how faith and emerging science can enrich each other. The workshop is one in a series funded by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation.

The 8 a.m.-12:15 p.m. event will include refreshments and lunch in addition to faculty-led discussions of important topics at the intersection of faith and science, including:

• What is the Relationship between Science and Religion?
• Why do People have Trouble with Evolution?
• Can There be Purpose in a World of Chance?
• Toward a Theology of Science

The workshop will be held in the Howard Room of the University Center.
