Christian Scientific Society Conference 2023

The Impact of Technology on Human Flourishing

The Honors Program is happy to bring the CSS conference to the AU campus on October 7. The event will be held in the Shaw CLC Luce Auditorium.

The CS Society aims to increase the understanding of the natural world and to encourage Christians in these efforts; to support education of the public on both the certainties and uncertainties of science, with a special aim to glorify God; to deliberate and investigate various controversial topics related to science; support scientists who are Christians through relational ministry and discipleship; and are called to support scientists who are Christians in cases where they may be facing discrimination or persecution because of their faith in Christ.
