Church to mark Evolution Weekend
As part of a nationwide Evolution Weekend that continues today and Sunday in First Presbyterian Church, 5555 S. Washington St., the Rev. Gretchen Graf will preach about the compatibility of science and the Bible at worship services at 9 and 11 a.m. Sunday.
“Presbyterians and many other Christians have long supported the discoveries of science as signs of the mystery and majesty of creation, (ah…correct me if I’m wrong but what mystery is there in “God created everything in 6 days?) not in contradiction to religion, (Ok…millions of years vs 6 literal 24 hr days…how is that not a contradiction?) ” Graf said. “As our knowledge of science has grown, our faith grows with it. We don’t have to hold ourselves to a literal reading of the Scripture, which denies modern discoveries. (Where does scripture deny modern discoveries? You are just speaking about “modern ideas” not discoveries http://www.answersingenesis.org) We can celebrate what contemporary scholarship teaches us alongside the faith tradition.”
Everyone is welcome.
