The Tower Series

Each year, the Tower Series offers the community a selection of incredible concerts and presentations in our Sanctuary. Concerts are varied in style, offered by musicians who bring their very best to a sacred space with amazing acoustics.  In addition, the Tower Series offers presentations on topics like science and religion, peace initiatives, and protecting our environment.  The concerts are usually held Sunday afternoons at 4 p.m.  They are free for all who attend.   A reception follows so attendees can meet and greet the presenters.

Tower Series - Explorations

Dr. Bill Blair is an astrophysicist and research professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University. In 1984, he came to Hopkins and has worked on several large telescope missions over the years. He has used the Hubble Space Telescope and many other space and ground-based telescopes for his research on supernova remnants and the interstellar regions of space. Until his recent retirement, he was also a project scientist for NASA's current flagship mission, the James Webb Space Telescope, working at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore.

As a scientist and life long Christian, and an active member of the Babcock Presbyterian Church, Bill's journey has caused him to examine life's mysteries and truths from both a religious and scientific perspective. Where many see conflict, Bill sees two separate world views that have much in common and work together to help us understand and engage with the creation around us. In this Tower Series Exploration program, he will share some of those thoughts with us!
