Fall 2017 LST Series

Belief, Healing and Health:  A Dialogue between Neuroscience and Theology

– Presented by Dr. Emily Askew and Dr. Donald Gash

Belief, healing and wellness of the body and mind were hallmarks of Jesus’s ministry and the early Christian Church.  Here we will see how they are at work in some faith communities today and intersect with lifestyles medical research is now showing are critical factors for healthy living.  We begin by examining vibrant communities that have the most 100+ year-olds in the world, the “Blue Zones” discovered in medical aging research studies. Issues of belief and healing bring up theological questions about the difference between healing and curing in Jesus’ ministry, God’s role in health and illness, our role as church in creating a healing environment.  Together a neuroscientist and a theologian consider how we can live better as people of faith.
