On the Edge of Ignorance

NCOS7200

“Science works on the frontier between knowledge and ignorance. We’re not afraid to admit what we don’t know – there’s no shame in that. The only shame is to pretend that we have all the answers.”

-Neil deGrasse Tyson, on the stunning new series Cosmos

Any theologian worth her salt works on that frontier as well.

    I read ur book about Sabbath in the Suburbs and loved it. put a copy of it in our ch. lib. too so others can enjoy. I hope to meet u soon in person so we can share Idylwood stories. I was there as Parhis Assoc. in late ”90’s. Rev. Sirbaugh was wonderful to work w/ as was the congregation. they called me “their woman.” lol! When i rec’d a call to a ch. in WV as a solo pastor, Rev. Jim and the choir came to sing and participate in my installation serv. Rev. S. preached and sang! wonderful memories.
