As you may remember, this summer I once again attended the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) Annual Meetings. What an exciting opportunity not only to be in dialogue regarding In Godâ€™s Image: Celebrating Creativity in Science and Invention (click here for audio files and slides of presentations), but also to deepen relationships with friends who are connected with InterVarsity as alumni, students, faculty, and staff.
Interested in becoming part of such a community, rich with a mixture of academic material/presentation and informal conversation? Then don’t miss out on the free ASA student membership!Â Whether or not you’re a member [or able to join me for what looks to be a great conference on From Cosmos to PsycheÂ (July 25 – 28,Â McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)], enjoy theÂ steady stream of material available throughÂ God and NatureÂ and ASA’sÂ Facebook Wall. Note:Â God and Nature magazineÂ is a literary resource for everyone who’s ever been confused, conflicted, intrigued, or inspired by the intersection of science and faith.
Drum roll: Yesterday, I received the below email regarding the launch of the Christian Women in ScienceÂ (CWIS), the formation of which was a dynamic part of this summer’s annual meetings. So yes, I’m enthusiastically spreading the word AND inviting you to do likewise 🙂 In addition to personal communications, maybe your campus fellowship could include the link to this post in their chapter communications (via email, Facebook, etc).Â ~Â Thomas B. Grosh IV, Associate Director ofÂ ESN, editor of ESNâ€™sÂ blogÂ andÂ Facebook Wall.

We are delighted to announce that Christian Women in Science (CWIS), a new affiliate organization of the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA), was launched on July 22, 2013, under the leadership of ASA council member Lynn Billman. Founded in 1941, the ASA is an international network of Christians in the sciences.
The mission of CWIS is to encourage Christian women of all ages to pursue, sustain, and grow in a career in science, technology, engineering or math, and to encourage women in these endeavors to pursue, sustain, and grow in the Christian faith. See the CWIS homepage for more info. CWIS is already having an impact — check out the CWIS blog here — and is planning several programs and activities.
