In late September and October, the Executive Director of SCIO, Dr Stan Rosenberg, journeyed across the US on a speaking tour. Dr Rosenberg addressed science and religion topics in open lectures; he also spoke at meetings with the science and religion clubs started under the auspices of SCIO and its Bridging the Two Cultures grant project. These included:

  • Calvin College on 25 September: a lecture on Augustine’s Theological Foundations for the Early Modern Move from Organism to Mechanism given at the ‘Christian Perspectives in Science Seminar’; an open forum held with the student science and religion club
  • Oklahoma Christian University on 28 September: a lecture on Can Nature be ‘Red in Tooth and Claw’ in the thought of Augustine
  • Southern Nazarene University on 1 October: a lecture on Can Nature be ‘Red in Tooth and Claw’ in the thought of Augustine; an open forum held with the student science and religion club.
