Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation Continue…
Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church in Houston invites you to attend Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation, an educational web meeting series whose theme in 2017 is Connections between People and Nature.
Feb. 26, 6 p.m.: Connections between People and Nature – Invasive Species
We often think of people and nature and separate entities. Yet we humans depend on the natural world in many ways and, in turn, impact nature through our activities. At the February 2017 web meeting, we welcome Professor Scott Solomon from Rice University, Biosciences, who will speak on Invasive Species. In his talk, he will examine one specific way in which humans affect the natural world: by transporting species around the world, we are creating powerful adversaries that impact not only native species but ourselves as well. Professor Solomon is a biologist and science writer who teaches ecology, evolutionary biology, and scientific communication. He recently published his first book, Future Humans: Inside the Science of Our Continuing Evolution. Professor Solomon will address Connections between People and Nature from the perspective of biosciences on Sunday, Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. After his talk, there will be time for Q&A. If you would like to join this online conversation, please register at www.eventbrite.com (search for “Connections between People” in Houston, TX) and you will receive an invitation to the web meeting.
