Welcome members to the group.
Introduction to this session
According to the Windsor Report 2004, scripture is the channel through which the supreme authority of the triune God is exercised (WR section B paragraphs 53–54). However, within Anglicanism, there is also a long tradition that welcomes developments in scientific knowledge and recognizes science as providing support to the cause of revealed religion.
In this session we reflect on some lessons about human sexuality that science (in the broadest sense of this term) may provide us. Our intention is not to disregard the authority of scripture in favour of scientific knowledge. It is rather to acknowledge the variety of factors and the complexity of their interactions that must be taken into account when attempting to understand human sexuality.
Science’s unique approach to problems adds another dimension in appreciating God’s creation.
