The Psalms proclaim that “the heavens declare the glory of God” – but how so? What can we learn about God from studying the sky? In these classes on faith and astronomy, astronomer Luke Leisman will share a bit of his journey as a Christian and a scientist, and some of the ways he sees the heavens declaring the glory of God. We’ll also discuss conflict between Christian and scientific views and communities, and explore ways thinking about the sky might help us grow closer to God and each other. Come with your questions and pondering!
Dr. Luke Leisman is an astronomer and author, deeply curious about the world, and committed to making it a better place.
