Last week at CCR we spoke of football and God. Our discussion closed with a quote from C.S. Lewis’ book, Abolition of Man, “For magic and applied science alike the problem is how to subdue reality to the wishes of men: the solution is a technique.”

It is easy to make fun of another’s superstition.

However, the reality of being human is that we seek to discover. In the process of discovery sometimes we draw conclusions that suit both our nurtured wounds and desires. Many times we seek with an agenda and only find ourselves at the same lost place from which we began.

Science holds many answers. How does it fit with faith?

This coming Sunday at CCR we’re going to take tough look at the question of Science and Faith. I’m no expert. Thus we will have a panel discussion with Dr. Holly Hixson, Dr. Emmanuel Nkusi, Roger Shaw, and Joy Atwine. I’m eager to ask questions and learn. I hope you will join us.


P.S. To meet the needs of CCR growth we will begin a second worship service on our 4 Year Thanksgiving Sunday, 6 March. Our first worship service will begin at 9:30, and continue to offer children’s classes during our sermon time. Also, the worship style will be a little lower in volume with a mixture of vernacular, contemporary music, and traditional hymns. Our second worship experience will begin at 11:30, and not offer children’s classes. The worship style will be a little louder and faster paced. During this time CCR will offer opportunities for adults to study.
