"The aim was twofold," said Dr. Kevin Powell, a member of the Alliance, symposium organizer and a pediatrician, College of Medicine, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign."One was to improve how Lutheran congregations relate to science, and the other was on a more personal level," he said."For many of these people there's been a conflict between science and religion, and they are people who really want to integrate the two.They feel that what they are doing with their vocation is what God has called them to do," Powell said."The symposium was to give people cognitive tools, emotional support and some affirmation from the institutional church that yes, what they are doing is in fact God's calling," he said.

Some of the most interesting speakers were the participants, Powell said.They discussed their experiences in ELCA congregations and gave the Alliance some ideas on how to proceed, he said."Our aim is to make congregations friendlier to science so they can understand the world they are living in, which is so profoundly influenced by science," Powell said."People in the congregations, especially the non-scientists, recognize how much their lives are affected by science, but they can be very frustrated trying to figure out how to impact that change," he said.

Dr. Kevin Powell, a member of the Church's Alliance for Faith, Science and Technology, and symposium organiser and pediatrician at the University of Illinois explained the two-fold aims of the symposium.
One of the aims was obviously to improve how Lutheran congregations relate to science and the other one would be on a more personal level, said Dr. Powell.
The symposium is thought to be a response to all the ethical issues aroused in recent years due to the advancement of medical research and technologies, such as stem cell research, abortion, and cloning.Dr. Powell said that inside many Christian scientists, there's been a conflict between science and religion, and they are people who really want to integrate the two.
The symposium was to give Christian scientists cognitive tools, emotional support and some affirmation from the institutional Church that what they are doing is in fact God's calling, Dr. Powell continued.
Certain controversial theological issues have also been discussed among the science and medical experts.
