This is the opening discussion in our series on Faith & Science, called ‘The Beauty of Creation’, where we’ll be engaging with leading scientists, philosophers and theologians. We hope to learn from them as we look for new syntheses that build upon and deepen our understanding of the world from the perspectives of science and faith, which are mutually enriching.
