SERMONS FROM
SCIENCE 
Stage demonstrations of scientific marvels plus color films of the wonders of nature, sponsored by the Christian Life Convention of New York City, illustrate the compatibility of faith and knowledge. The shows take place in a circular auditorium seating 500. In an adjoining conference room, visitors may meet religious leaders associated with the exhibit. The building, with its scalloped roof, is reached by a ramp which curves over a reflecting pool. Jets of flaming gas and splashing water ring the area.
