Explore how mystery is part of both science and faith in this talk by our Canon Scientist Emeritus. 

The Covid pandemic embodied both the power and uncertainty of science. Scientists work across a range of disciplines, using the interaction of data and theory, observations and judgements, trust and questions. In this, science has many parallels with the Christian faith.

From Covid to cosmology, from Darwin to Dawkins, and from James Webb to Young Sheldon, David Wilkinson discusses the role that faith plays within science and the role that science can play in faith.
