February 18: “Men with Scientific Minds and Religious Souls: Charles Darwin and Asa Gray” / Rev. Ziegler, Jeff Lockwood and Matt Stannard

February 13th, 2018 | Posted by admin in Services

As part of Evolution Weekend marking Charles Darwin’s birthday, Jeff Lockwood and Matt Stannard will share a dramatic reading based on correspondence between the Unitarian Charles Darwin and Asa Gray, a Harvard professor of botany and an orthodox Christian. Their correspondence helps shed light on the personal religious struggle Darwin had about publishing his book. The service will be followed by a “donation-suggested” chili luncheon prepared by Bren Lieske, a showing of “Paradise Lost: The Religious Life of Charles Darwin,” and a facilitated discussion of the continuous controversial debates about evolution, creationism and intelligent design.
