Eric Priest (holding the sun to the right). Dr. Priest is an emeritus professor of mathematics at St. Andrews University in Scotland, a solar physicist, a winner of prizes from the American Astronomical Society and the Institute of Physics, a fellow of the Royal Society, and an honorary lecturer at Harvard, the University of Oslo, and a number of other places around the globe. He's a serious scientist who has had a long and productive career at the forefront of his field. He's also quite religious.
From a sermon he delivered at University Chapel at St. Andrews:
So should we trust science or God? My answer is clearly both – but in different ways. Science & Religion are much closer in approach than perhaps you realised. We all need Science to learn more of nature God’s universe and to tackle problems of 21st century. we are each on a journey of discovery in this life, in company of the communities of which we are part and with the guidance & support right at core of reality of a God whose Holy Spirit cares for each one of us.
So let us pray:It warmed my heart to read that, not only for the sentiments but for the source.
Lord Jesus, we pray that you will continue to guide and inspire us, as we learn more of the nature of your incredible universe, and as we seek to follow you in our journeying all the days of our lives. Amen
