Asbury welcomes Oxford University Scholar Dr. Shaun C. Henson!

Dr. Henson will speak at both services (8:30 & 11:00 am). A common assumption is that science and faith are necessarily at odds, or at worst, are at war. That notion is known in academic circles as ‘the conflict thesis’. It sells newspapers, magazines, and books, but it is not the full story.

Dr. Henson will explain why science and faith are ultimately allies, true friends, and how understanding this can lead to enrichment both in society and at the level of personal and communal faith.

Dr. Shaun C. Henson is the Lecturer in Science and Religion in Oxford University's Faculty of Theology and Religion. He lectures and publishes in areas including Science and Religion, philosophical theology, Christian doctrine, and Christian spirituality.

This is part of the Asbury church service, so there is no admission charge.
