Tom Bowring writes: I fall into writing this piece from a place of unwilling necessity following a period of reflective silence.

The news that a new Anglican Communion Science Commission is being established is to be welcomed, not least because it ensures that Anglicanism will be prepared to engage an increasingly confident scientific culture that often challenges traditional beliefs and attitudes. There is a need for Anglicans to be aware of both the scientific and theological aspects of debates focusing both on the general cultural authority of science and specific debates in which scientific advance raises significant religious questions. Yet it is also important to be reassured that the Anglican tradition has the capability of engaging with these questions, critically and transformatively.
