The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.
The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.
On November 9th, 2009 the Center for Faith and Culture hosted a Charles Darwin lecture featuring Thomas Woodward, PhD. The year 2009 marked the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his Origin of the Species. The lecture examined the impact of Darwin's life and work. More specifically, the lecture explored the influence of Darwinian thought in the Western world. The lecture began at 7:00pm and was held on the campus of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in the Center for Faith and Culture seminar room and was followed by a question and answer time. Approximately eighty people attended the event.
