Everyone is cordially invited to an Adult Study Class at First and Summerfield United Methodist Church (corner of College and Elm) on Thursday evenings from . The class is led by Bioethicist in Residence Karen Lebacqz, and the topics are as follows:
· Feb 2: “Our Genes and Us.” What is the significance of the mapping of the human genome? What promise and peril do gene therapy and enhancement hold? In this session, we will look at what some have called the 'holy grail' in order to assess its implications for the human future.
· Feb 9: “Why Theology Matters to Bioethics.” In the public debates about stem cells, cloning, and genetic engineering, the theological voice is often muted. Yet theologians have been there from the beginning, and ultimately the questions are deeply theological. Tonight we will look at what God is saying and why theology matters to the ongoing debates in bioethics.
