    What a great conversation! Growing up I never really liked the sciences. Math was always my forte. As I’m getting older, a deeper appreciation for math and the sciences has emerged and I love to hear good, thoughtful Christians in these fields share how they tell the glory of our creator. Like David wrote in the Psalms, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” We need not shy away from science, math, philosophy, etc. Let’s engage them.
