    What about inviting Donald Knuth to write an article about
    faith relating to computer science.
    Donald Knuth is one of the most - if not THE most - respected
    computer scientists in the world.
    He is prof. emeritus at Stanford. His book series "The art of
    computer programming" is classic.
    Knuth is also a christian - as I have understood it.

    I just did a search on the web and found that Knuth delivered
    the "Pascal Lectures on Christianity and the University"
    at the University of Waterloo last year.
    Topic - "Glimpses of God: Faith and Computer Science".

    Best regards from Inge
