“Holding Body and Soul Together,” we believe the scientific and faith communities have a lot to learn from each other and benefit from a mutually respectful relationship. All are welcome to our next Rheticus Conversation Night facilitated by Sinai and Synapses Fellow Dr. Ashlynn Stillwell, of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at UIUC.

Professor Stillwell says, “There’s comfort in the pursuit of knowledge in the science and engineering community, but there’s a sense of wonder that comes from thinking on, praying on, meditating on, the infinite.” With a focus on water, she plans to address where and how her faith and science conflict and where and how they compliment each other. After her presentation, we’ll open the evening for discussion and conversation, believing there is much to be gained from this unique dialogue.

The event is interfaith and open to all. Please join us!
