BioLogos Director, Praveen Sethupathy, Shares Views on Harmonizing Faith With Science

The Foundation’s “Lecture Series” has been an opportunity to enlighten teachings and life applications of the Christian faith, along with forming new and meaningful partnerships with faith organizations like BioLogos.

Dr. Praveen Sethupathy, (BioLogos Board Member and Director for the Center of Genomics at Cornell University) the keynote speaker of our lecture “Creating Harmony between Faith and Science” highlighted concrete ways in which faith and science harmonize and emphasized that being made in the Image of God (Gen. 1:27) is primarily a “calling of service” gifted by God to each person. He shared that we are called to manifest and channel the characteristics of God and service towards the rest of creation. You may view the full lecture below:

BioLogos upholds the authority and inspiration of the Bible and seeks to promote dialogue that supports the harmony between faith and science. It was founded by one of the top Biologists in the world, Dr. Francis Collins who led the Human Genome Project and is currently the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
