Reflection for the Week - September 25

There is no worse testimony than when Christians miss defining moments in the history of the Christian faith. Too much gets trashed and the next generation spends most of its time digging its way out of the wreckage. I believe we are now facing a hugely significant issue that will mark the faith for years to come: the dialogue between current science and ancient theology. Unless we are willing to engage with new data and seriously consider our interpretations afresh, there is the danger of leaving behind us the powerful shadow of ignorance and arrogance.
