Blog posts by my pastor at Crossroads Church in Lansing, Noah Filipiak,
- Should we read Genesis literally?
- 11/1 Creationism Origin Summit @MSU: Christians wrong in so many ways
General faith resources & apologetics:
- More Than a Carpenter by Josh McDowell & Sean McDowell
- The Reason for God by Tim Keller
These resources inspired me to speak out in my church community and write blog posts of my own:
- Can science disprove religion?
- Believing in creation, believing in evolution
- A highly improbable flood
- Many more to come.
In case I needed one final kick of encouragement, the Ecological Society of America 2015 meeting in Baltimore, MD featured an entire day of talks about "Ecologists and Faith & Justice Communities: A Journey from Antagonism to Earth Stewardship Partnerships for the Next Century," as well as a Christian-ecologist brown bag lunch and an evening discussion session. It was connections made at these events that inspired this resource page and will hopefully continue to foster this dialogue into the future.
Resources brought up at ESA:
The Au Sable Institute, promoting the vision for "a global community equipped with environmental knowledge, skills, and ethics to faithfully and fearlessly pursue the Christian vision of a flourishing earth."
The American Scientific Affiliation, an international network of Christians in the sciences.
