Join us today as we look at the world through the lens of Scripture. We start with some of the news making headlines and then join with CMDA in celebrating a victory in federal court that sets a national precedent. We then hear from a biochemist who will tell us what he believes is the most profound display of love. Don’t miss this fascinating conversation.
The holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year but they can also bring about stress – unresolved family conflict; past wounds; unmet expectations and overeating. How do we learn to navigate the joys of the season with the stress they can sometimes bring? Join us to learn how really enjoy Christmas!

Biochemist Fazale “Fuz” Rana is president, CEO, and senior scholar of Reasons to Believe (RTB), an organization dedicated to communicating the powerful scientific case for God’s existence and the Bible’s reliability to both Christians and non-Christians. Fuz converted to Christianity during graduate school. Though he initially embraced the evolutionary paradigm, he eventually drew the conclusion that only a Creator’s involvement could explain the elegance of biochemical systems. After a pastor challenged him to read the Bible, Fuz became convinced of the validity of Christ’s claims and of his own need for a Savior. Fuz earned a BS in chemistry with highest honors (West Virginia State College) and a PhD in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry (Ohio University) and completed postdoctoral work at the Universities of Virginia and Georgia. Before joining RTB in 1999, he worked for seven years as a senior scientist in research and development for Procter & Gamble. To date, Fuz has addressed more than 500 university, church, and conference audiences in the US and abroad. His books include Humans 2.0, The Cell’s Design, and Fit for a Purpose. He was also featured in Museum of the Bible’s Scripture and Science exhibit in Washington, DC.
