Emma says,

I’m so excited to join the ISCAST team and be able to contribute to such important work. I’ve been amazed by the number of people who seem genuinely surprised that my Christian faith can sit alongside science so comfortably—the conflict myth is stubborn! I’m looking forward to seeing ISCAST build more bridges between science and faith and encouraging fruitful conversations.
