Religion & Science Roundtable set for Jan. 14

Laurinburg, N.C. - St. Andrews University is pleased to announce that Rev. Randy Bremer will present the first Religion and Science Roundtable of 2014 on Jan. 14 in the Carol Grotnes Belk Main Room in the William Henry Belk Center on campus.

The free event begins with a dinner at 6 p.m. with the lecture set to begin at 7 p.m. Seating is limited so reservations are required and may be made until Thursday, Jan. 9 by contacting rsvp@sapc.edu or calling 910-277-3968. Please include that reservation is for the Religion and Science Roundtable, the names of the attendees and any special meal requirements.

Bremer will present The Related World of God and the Atom. He will share about the work of 19th century physicist James Clark Maxwell and theologian T.F. Torrance.

“Maxwell’s book, A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism, was hailed by Albert Einstein as the most significant work since Isaac Newton,” said Bremer. “Torrance shows how it was Maxwell’s understanding of Trinitarian theology that led to his dissatisfaction with the mechanistic world view that had dominated since Newton, and enable him to articulate and mathematically define a dynamic field theory that opened the door for 20th century advances in physics.”

Bremer is a graduate of Hillsdale College where he majored in math and minored in physics. He was a co-recipient of the math prize given to the outstanding mathematician in the senior class. He then attended Princeton Theological Seminary where he found strong guidance from professors James Loder and Diogenes Allen, both of whom had a passion for integrating Christian faith and the natural sciences.

Ordained in the Presbyterian Church, he has served pastorates in Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina, including Laurel Hill. He is currently a member of the Presbytery of Coastal Carolina, but serving as Interim Pastor of Kings Grant Presbyterian Church in Virginia Beach, Va.

The second Roundtable will take place March 18 with a presentation by Larry Taunton, executive director of the Fixed Point Foundation.

The Religion and Science Roundtables at St. Andrews are related to the annual McNair Lecture on Science and Theology. The McNair lecture was established by the 1857 will of John Calvin McNair who asked that “the object of which lecture(s) shall be to show the mutual bearing of Science and Theology upon each other...."
