Making Elbow Room for Faith in the Science Classroom

How should faith statements be balanced with scientific statements in science classes? In this workshop we will develop four classes of observable phenomena. We will note that while the Creator is involved with his creation at all levels, our ability to formulate a natural explanation for a given phenomenon depends on which class it is in. In Class 1, scientific explanations are readily available. In Class 4, they are not, and only Christian faith can provide an explanation. In this way we will demonstrate that bringing faith into scientific discourse does not always entail a “God of the gaps” argument.
