Science and Religion Resources
The WesleyNexus website is designed to provide resources
to individuals and groups who are interested in science and
share the heritage of John Wesley as part of their faith
tradition. The goal is to build an understanding of how
science, religion, and theology can better inform one
another among persons in a growing online community.
Visitors to the WesleyNexus website are encouraged to
download resources for their own needs in addressing
issues in the dialogue between science and religion.
Feedback from participants regarding any resource will
always be welcomed and appreciated. WesleyNexus is
committed to developing dialogue among those who choose
to participate, following general rules of courtesy that one
expects to encounter in a face-to-face open discussion.
To that end, we encourage visitors to the website to register
with their email address to allow us to communicate through
an occasional newsletter and important notices.
Science and Religion Discussions
Through all of its online activities, WesleyNexus endeavors
to broaden a growing dialogue among thoughtful persons of
faith who take science seriously. We believe this will result
in a rich and diverse conversation encouraging growth and a
deep respect from and for all persons with differing views on
many matters both simple and complex. There will not be a
doctrinal or theological litmus test imposed on any
|“Science without Religion is Lame,
Religion without Science is Blind.”
WesleyNexus was created in 2009 as a nonprofit
organization dedicated to the dissemination of sound
information about the dialogue between science and religion
within the Wesleyan tradition in the 21st century.
WesleyNexus emerged from the dialogue among a core
group of dedicated clergy, academics, and lay persons in
greater Washington, D.C. This group now seeks to support
others who share the conviction that science, religion, and
theology should not be mutually exclusive. Instead, each
field should inform the other on a whole array of
contemporary issues. As Albert Einstein stated (“Science
and Religion” Symposium, 1941, p. 46),
William Cleary is a writer,
and poet who lives in
Burlington, Vermont and
is the author of prayers and
poems reflecting a deep
appreciation for our evolution shaped world.
Samples of his work can be found here.
