Throughout human history, human curiosity has been a driving force for both science and religion as we strive to find ultimate reality and truth. They are the parallel searches for understanding the reality within (our psychical) and the reality without (the physical). However, their world views have come into deep conflict with one another and have created conflict between us.
During this service we will explore the important areas in which science and religion impinge on each other, what impact they have had on each other and if there is a slim chance of compatibility. Do you already know where you stand in this conflict? We all have different orientations, different temperaments, and different cultural backgrounds, but if we remain curious, perhaps we may find a glimmer of wider understanding.
