“I was lucky to attend one of the first training courses on communicating faith & science, which transformed my thinking. Beforehand, I had just been focussed on working things out from a personal standpoint but the training gave me the tools to begin communicating all of these internal thoughts to other people. And I’ve been enjoying putting what I’ve learned into practice at the GATBB school events and in other contexts.”
