The Creation in Crisis: Science and Theology Respond Conference focuses on the urgent environmental crisis facing humanity and our entire planet. We are privileged to welcome Nalini Nadkarni, Cornelia Mutel, and Larry Rasmussen as our keynote presenters and panelists. Each brings insightful perspectives on the ethical challenges we face in responding to this global crisis. The program also will feature the opportunity to participate in workshops on environmental themes.
