Perceived conflicts between religion and science will be discussed 7 p.m. CT Monday, Aug. 7 at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled “Science and Religion: Can They Coexist?” features a filmed interview with Brother Guy Consolmagno, a scientist with the Vatican Observatory.

“Science is understanding, seeking truth. Religion is truth, seeking understanding,” says Consolmagno. “They are on the same road.”

During the program, Lifetree Café participants will also discuss potential clashes and commonalities between the two ideologies.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
