A Mighty Something

Cosmology: Part One A Mighty Something Wednesday, August 28, 2019 Most people believe that physicists are explaining the world. . . .

Holistic Knowing

Cosmology: Part One Holistic Knowing Tuesday, August 27, 2019 The sciences will just separate the human off and focus on the physical aspects of the universe and the religious traditions will shy away from the universe because that’s reserved for science.

An Anticipatory Universe

Creativity An Anticipatory Universe Thursday, June 7, 2018 I believe that the core of the Judeo-Christian revelation is that we are created in the image of God.
