The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago's Zygon Center for Religion and Science received a grant of nearly $200,000 from the John Templeton Foundation to help future clergy and lay leaders connect religious wisdom and scientific knowledge. Center director Lea Schweitz (page 24) will take the lead in developing curricula for existing required seminary classes. One goal of the 30-month "Teaching Religion and Science across the Seminary Curriculum" project is to create resources and a model for other seminaries. The center is a partnership of LSTC and the Center for Advanced Study in Religion and Science.
