Donations in support of our Executive Director, (ex-Executive Officer) Chris Mulherin, are rolling in. We thank each of you who have donated already for your support.
If each member of ISCAST was to donate $300 we would cover our target easily (although we are happy to receive more if you are able).
Thanks to Ian Hore-Lacy for alerting us to this interesting commentary at First Things on 'Christian creation-care wars' in the US; for those interested in the politics and theological leanings behind care for the planet.
Friends of A Rocha Australia event
Date: Saturday 1st April, 2017. 2pm - 9pm
Location: Wills Track, Baynton, Vic.
Our friends at A Rocha Australia have an event on April 1 that may interest those interested in creation care, sustainability, and conservation.
Today is International Women's Day and, while women are not overly represented in ISCAST (a challenge to remedy!), here's a sneak peak at a woman who we hope will be joining us in Australia for a conference next year. Jennifer Wiseman is senior scientist on the Hubble space telescope and (NASA permitting) will join us in March 2018 for our next COSAC–Conference on Science and Christianity.
Here she is in interview mode:
Does the discovery of exoplanets threaten established religions here on Earth?
