Giberson to discuss faith, learning relationship

Huntington, Ind.—Huntington University’s 2009-2010 Forester Lecture Series will begin Sept. 10 with Dr. Karl W. Giberson, professor of physics at Eastern Nazarene College.

Giberson will present “Making Friends with Darwin: A Christian’s Painful Journey” at 7 p.m. in the Zurcher Auditorium of the Merillat Centre for the Arts. As part of The Examined Christian Life Series, his lecture will focus on what it means to be an educated Christian and the role of higher learning in the journey of faith.
