Medina Presbyterian Church is committed to the idea that people of faith can also be people engaged in the fields of science and technology. In order to foster a dialogue between the world of science and the Christian faith, from time to time we sponsor discussions and lectures on topics at the intersection of these fields.

These gatherings are free and open to the public. Participants are asked to bring a sense of curiosity about creation and God's self-revelation, and to be respectful of others whose understandings may be different.

The next in this series of conversations will be help on Monday, October 16, when Karen Haely, who teaches Bioethics at the College of Wooster, will speak on the ethical and theological ramifications of the new CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing tchnology that is currently in experiemental use throughout the nation and the world. Ms. Haely will speak at 7:00 PM that evening in Fellowship Hall.
 
We would like to bring to your attention another talk on the relationship between science and theology, this one to take place on Tuesday, September 19, on the campus of Ashland University. Dr. Deborah Haarsma, president of the Biologos Foundation, will speak on the topic of "Can Science and the Bible Work Together? Christian Perspectives on Creation, Design and Evolution." Dr. Haarsma's talk will take place at 7:00 PM in Hugo Young Theatre at Ashland. 

Both talks are free and open to the public.
