August 6: How Religious Beliefs are Compatible with Scientific Thought

10 AM with Nick Warren, UUCUV Member

Nick will reflect on how religious beliefs and scientific thought can coexist in society and on a personal level. The history of science and religion hasn’t always been peaceful, but not because they are incompatible. Both science and religion are methods to search for truth, but each method addresses different questions. Nick will share his own story of how logical thought has been a valuable tool in his spiritual journey.
