2006 Evolution Sunday

On 12 February 2006 hundreds of congregations from all portions of the country and a host of denominations came together to discuss the compatibility of religion and science.   For far too long, strident voices, in the name of Christianity, have been claiming that people must choose between religion and modern science.  More than 10,000 Christian clergy signed The Clergy Letter demonstrating that this is a false dichotomy.  On the 197th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, many of these leaders brought this message to their congregations through sermons and/or discussion groups.  Together, participating religious leaders made the statement that religion and science are not adversaries.  And, together, they elevated the quality of the national debate on this topic.

To examine some of the sermons members of The Clergy Letter Project have delivered on this topic and to view some of the resources they have found useful, click here.
