For the past 50 years, the Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation has facilitated discussions about science and Christian faith in Canada. As part of our 50th-anniversary celebrations, we asked 50 CSCA members to comment on their personal connections to science, scripture, and Canadian scenery. We will share these contributions throughout 2023 in the hope that you will find them engaging and encouraging.
CSCA member of the week: Joy Liu, Computer Science student at UBC.
1. Why did you choose your scientific discipline?
I chose computer science because I wanted to learn techniques to create websites, analyze big data, and come up with algorithms to solve interesting problems.
2. What is one of your favourite Bible verses and why?
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I love it because it has been strengthening my faith in walking with God in the valleys.
3. Which Canadian city or landscape do you love exploring and why?
I love Vancouver because of the good balance of the city view and the natural beauty. I can see snow mountains every day from the Skytrain station near where I live.
