Faith at 5 PM

I am dualistic (kind of ‘quantum’) on the topics of science and faith. I have often responded to secular and atheist opinions on faith by asking the question about faith communities – where else would they come from? They’re not ‘support groups’ per se: there’s a depth and commitment I’ve seen nowhere else. Neil Stephenson even notes the phenomenon in his novel Cryptonomicon.

We attend the 5 PM Sunday service at Trinity Episcopal Church in Menlo Park: it’s our faith community, without whose prayers, thoughts, meals and loving support, I’m not sure I or Linda would have made it through the last 6 months.

Speaking of which, Trinity is sponsoring a series starting this Wednesday evening on science and faith. I’m paricularly interested in hearing Dr. Sjoerd Bonting, scientist and Anglican priest, talk about “Chaos Theology.” Doing anything Wednesday PM? Come on down….

    If people are allowed to study it objectively, science will eventually prove religion to be true, at least in a symbolic way. The biggest opponent of objective science today is politics and money, and this creates flawed data which seems to contradict religion.
