Scientific debates primarily occur in the public sphere devoid of shared values, which can be alienating for church audiences. This creates a dual challenge to both bring the public sphere conversation into the church and bring Christian values into the public sphere discussion.

Evolution and climate change are two issues where people often perceive a disconnect between church and society. In this presentation, I will share some of my personal experiences re-framing evolution and climate change conflict as opportunities for discipleship and stewardship.
