I once heard Adam Hamilton of Church of the Resurrection say that he tried to plan topical preaching series that might be attractive to nominal church attenders, and offer those series immediately after holidays like Christmas and Easter when you might get the attention of new people. With that approach in mind, I decided that I would see if the topic of "faith and science" would get any traction for a post-Easter preaching series and am planning to spend three weeks on the topic.
Any advice on how to handle the topic from the pulpit? Any experiences with this topic becoming a wedge issue within a congregation? I am both excited and nervous about doing this, so guidance from the experiences of others would be great!
