Clergy observe Evolution Sunday

Friday was the birthday of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin, and a few area pastors celebrated Darwin’s theories with their Sunday sermons this past weekend, according to a list compiled by The Clergy Letter Project.
The letter — signed by more than 13,000 religious leaders — states that those signing it accept evolution as a foundational scientific truth: “We believe that among God’s good gifts are human minds capable of critical thought and that the failure to fully employ this gift is a rejection of the will of our Creator. To argue that God’s loving plan of salvation for humanity precludes the full employment of the God-given faculty of reason is to attempt to limit God, an act of hubris.”
Among the clergy who have signed are the Revs. Geoffrey Howson of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Fairview; Guy Mehl of Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster; and Bruce Epperly of Disciples United Christian Community in Lancaster.
