Advent Series Featuring Scientists on the Incarnation
What does it mean to say that baby Jesus is not just fully divine, but also fully human? Science in Congregations has scientists responding to that very question each week in Advent. Sign up to receive their answers. They are also rebranding and seeking funding to build a new websiteâ€“so you will have to wait to see the full series archived online. Our friends at Science in Congregations shared with us that they’ll be running this series, and we thought ESN members might enjoy it.
