Closing Survey For Science & Theology

Throughout this year, we’ve benefited from a grant from the American Association for the Advancement of Science to include science in the core curriculum of seminaries.  For all they’ve supported – lectures, classes, books and visits – they’ve asked very little!  But one thing they do ask for is a closing survey of students to measure the effect the grant has had.  Sometime this week, please do go to and invest the couple of minutes needed to give them important information.  The questions may look familiar – almost everyone took the same survey back in September – that’s what will make it so valuable.  Many thanks!
