We need to keep rethinking what we believe about God based on new ideas and new experiences.
The fact that a poetic statement like “human life is like a bowl of cherries” is a false scientific fact does not detract from its profound truth, reality, and insight.
Rabbi Rachael Jackson and Rabbi Michal Loving discuss how can science and religion add up to a holistic human experience.
If humans have learned over eons that intercessory prayer doesn’t “work”, why do we keep doing it?
Why are some sources of authority more alluring than others?
Religion and science needn’t live in their own echo chambers. Rather, they can coexist in a meaningful way, both informing the other.
Religious people feel threatened by secular, scientific-worldview people, and secular people, conversely, feel threatened by religious thought. How do we find common ground?
Religion is a human endeavor, and so different religions will have different ways to reach those goals.
Don’t assume that “religious = conservative” and “scientific = liberal.”
Meaning is contextual. It allows us to change the story. And that, too, is a source of power.
