This course, taught by Leonard M. Hummel at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, employs the activities of the Spring Academy Week to enable students to explore key issues in science for the practice of ministry. Among the happenings of that week on which students may choose to focus are: lectures and workshops on “Faith, Science and Action” through the Lutheran Advocacy Ministry in Pennsylvania; a retreat sponsored by TEY for high school students on science and Christian Life; Preaching Perspectives on “Preaching & Science in a Time of Creation-Crisis;” many exciting guest lecturers; many interesting workshops relevant to congregational leadership and science; and interesting movies/some food. A great way to focus on the activities of SAW, receive course credit and learn much for ministry. 1.5 credits.
