Cambridge area professors are the majority of our guests at each Roundtable, experiencing an exchange with the potential to bring added depth to their lives as scholars and as educators. Evenings are sponsored by chairpersons dedicated to fostering dialogue that explores the intersection of science, faith, and philosophy. Select community leaders are invited to ensure a diversity of points of view. Our evenings together have been made possible thanks to funding in partnership with contributors to The Leadership Connection, generous local scholars, Christian Union, Sword and Spoon, Gloria Dei, the John Templeton Foundation, and with thanks to Memorial Church of Harvard University.
The Cambridge Roundtable on Science and Religion is by invitation only at a nominal fee of $20 per person, with no additional charges and free parking at the Broadway Garage on Felton Street. FIRST-TIME participants are FREE. With hors d’oeuvres first, every Roundtable assigns six guests to each table for brief remarks from presenters, followed by dinner, drinks, dessert & discussion. At the close of our evening we return to enjoying time with our presenters.
The Roundtable is co-chaired by:
Owen Gingerich, Astronomy and History of Science, Harvard University, Emeritus
Robert Randolph, Chaplain to the Institute, MIT, Retired
David Thom, MIT Chaplain with The Leadership Connection, and Project Director of the JTF funded Roundtables on Science & Religion at Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale, The Amherst Area Five Colleges, and of course Harvard & MIT. New Roundtables open in the Fall of 2020 at Chicago, Cornell, Duke, Northwestern, Penn and Princeton.
