“What Science Tells Us about Lives That Are Also Religious”
The Rev. Scott Prinster
Alissa Rhode, Lead Music Director
In the weeks following the March for Science, Americans are right to ask ourselves, “What exactly is scientific knowledge good for?” It’s clear that science and technology have brought about enormous changes in our lives, especially in terms of medicine, communications, and transportation. However, it’s not as clear how science contributes to the meaning of our lives — our capacity for gratitude and hope, the depth and authenticity of our relationships, and our sense of larger purpose. I’ll explore with you how my background as a scientist has shaped my life as a Unitarian Universalist seeker and minister.
The Rev. Scott Gerard Prinster is a physicist, Unitarian Universalist minister, and doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin, where he is completing his dissertation on the historical relationships between science and religion in America.
