This month's presentation:
Reading God's Book of Nature
with Dr. Laurence Meissner
Professor Laurence Meissner, Ph.D., noted Lutheran biologist and scripture scholar, will share his perspective on nature and its care. An esteemed professor from Concordia University, Austin, Dr. Meissner will discuss his views regarding our religious responsibility to the creation.
Dr. Meissner is professor of Biology at Concordia University, respected in equal measure for both his fieldwork and philosophical discourse.
The Lutheran tradition asserts that God revealed Himself to man in three ways: through Holy Scripture, through the Word made flesh in the person of His Son Jesus Christ, and through the handiwork of His Creation. As such, each revelation has authority, but each speaks to us in different ways and each addresses specific questions about who we are and how we should live. This presentation synthesizes elements from these revelations to create a framework for how Lutherans view nature and man’s responsibility for its use and care.
Dr. Meissner holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education from Concordia University, Nebraska, a Master’s degree in Biology from Eastern Michigan University, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Science Education from the University of Texas at Austin.
This session will include Q&A. Bring your questions and join us in considering and being inspired by, the spiritual basis for environmental stewardship!
