“Our freedoms can only
be maintained by the advancement of technologies that serve mankind—
not advancing technology puts Freedom at Risk and
our freedom is
threatened because we
don't take the time to
participate in it” GJD
A little known group of people have been meeting along with the
American Nuclear Society meetings since 1976
CNF the Christian Nuclear Fellowship is an informal, Interdenominational fellowship of Christians who work in the field of nuclear science and technology. "We are committed to encouraging one another in living out our faith day-by-day and in applying Christian principles in our private and professional lives". The CNF has been meeting regularly in conjunction with the summer and winter ANS (American Nuclear Society) meetings since CNF was formed in 1976.
We became aware of this group at their Reno meeting in 2006 and caught up with them again in Boston in 2007. So, below we have posted some photos along with comments about who they are and what they do. CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
