With great excitement and anticipation we announce that Dr. Jennifer J. Wiseman and Professor Ronald Cole-Turner will be our keynote speakers for the 2019 Craigville Theological Colloquy on Faith & Science: The Choices We Make.
Dr. Wiseman is the Director of the AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program. She also is an astrophysicist at NASA, where she is the Senior Project Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope, and she studies the formation of stars and planetary systems using radio, optical, and infrared telescopes. She is a public speaker and author, and she remembers attending a retreat at the Craigville Retreat Center when she was undertaking her graduate studies.
Prof. Cole-Turner holds the H. Parker Sharp Chair in Theology and Ethics at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He is a member of the Executive Committee of the International Society for Science and Religion and one of the Co-Chairs of the American Academy of Religion Unit on Human Enhancement and Transhumanism. He has served as an ordained minister with the United Church of Christ, and he was a keynote speaker for an earlier Craigville Theological Colloquy.
We look forward to welcoming our keynoters back to Craigville. We also hope you have the dates for the colloquy on your calendar: July 8-12, 2019. We will be announcing our registration process by early February.
