Science and Faith power point

NOTE. If you are using these along with Luther’s small Catechism, note that I have alluded to Luther’s explanations in the power points to  make it easy for you to refer to the catechism at appropriate points, I have not reprinted the catechism because it is copyrighted material, but I have made summaries and short “fair-use” quotes. The edition I use is Luther’s Small Catechism copyright 1986 Concordia Publishing House, St. Louis, Missouri.If you don’tahve access to a printed catechism, you can read it online at (the three parallel lines at upper right take you to the full menu and choice of languages).
