Making Sense of our Identity in the 21st Century World

with Prof Glynn Harrison

Event Date: Wednesday 12 October 2022
Event Time:7:30 PM
Venue: 70 Broad Street, Birmingham, B1 2HT

Are science and faith opposed to one another? Does science disprove the existence of God? Or, alternatively, are science and the Christian faith complementary partners, together helping us to understand the world and our place in it in the early 21st century? This series of talks will all be given by prominent scientists who are also Christians, explaining how their science and their Christian beliefs work together. 

Where do we find our identity? Is it in the number of likes we have on social media? Maybe it hinges on our current relationship, on what we drive, we own or what we do for a living. Prof Glynn Harrison (University of Bristol) is a consultant psychiatrist who speaks on issues of faith and psychology, neuroscience and psychiatry. In this talk he will examine a Christian perspective on the ways in which we can find true significance in a culture of self-esteem.
