Integrating science and Christianity

Hello All,

I am in the process developing my thoughts on how a Christian should
approach science in practice. One of my concerns is whether it is
necesary to exclude all supernatural explanations in theorizing and
hypothesis-testing. For example, can we test a hypothesis of intelligent
design, say in abiogenesis? What is also bothering me is that if we
really need to think naturalistically in order to practice science, then
it creates a tension for us as Christians, because the truth is that the
universe is subjected to divine intervention, however rare or pervasive
that may be. I would appreciate comments on this. Thanks!
