God's OUTRAGEOUS Universe

Coming April 27th

In recent years, science has revealed the universe and all that is in it
to be truly outrageous. What we call reality is so mysterious, so vast,
so intricate, so precise and so elusive that many have wondered if the
Bible and its message are relevant. Just 'over the hill' at the
Lawrence Berkeley Lab, scientists are literally listening to the
echoes of the Big Bang. Are those echoes that confirm God's
non-existence or are they the echoes of the voice of God which
spoke Creation into existence?

Join us Sunday, April 27th, as Dr. Rollie J. Otto (recently retired
head of the Center for Science and Engineering Education at LBL)
speaks about faith and science.

9:45 - 10:30 a.m. Dr. Otto will lead a special 'Youth and Adult'
event in the Center for Ministry, looking at the most recent developments in
cosmology, the study of the origins and the future of the Universe.

6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Dr. Otto will lead a conversation about "Faith and
Science:  Conflicted or Connected?" This event is intended to bring
together congregation and community members (bring a friend
or neighbor!) to reflect upon the Universe and our place in it.
