Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church invites you to attend an Adult Forum that addresses scripture and science. Lisa Brenskelle & Elmer Ledesma, leaders of the Creation Care Team at Christ the King, will consider: Is there conflict or connection between scripture & science? If there is connection, what connection exists? If a connection exists, then scientific understanding matters for people of faith – but, how can they distinguish good science from “fake news”? Join us for this insightful Adult Forum! Christ the King is located at 2353 Rice Blvd. in Houston. Metro buses 41 and 27 stop nearby. For more information, contact Lisa Brenskelle at email@example.com.
