The God Who Creates Our Future

Newtonian physics was beautiful classical music. No improvisation. Quantum theory is much closer to jazz. You don’t know what’s going to happen. Along these lines, I learned from quantum physicist and theologian Robert John Russell that, at every moment, there’s chaos at the subatomic level. In his understanding, it’s God who continually brings order out of that deep quantum chaos. He writes that “from this perspective we really do not know what the world would be like without God’s action.”

The Neuroscience of Teaching Christian Formation

Our human brains are made to grab onto knowledge that we can both apply in our lives and that is also efficacious—it makes a difference. It strikes me that too often when I’ve mentioned science and faith, people tell me, “That’s too heady for me,” which can mean that it seems abstract and academic, not related to the lives we actually live 24-7. Applicability and efficacy seemed like antidotes.

How Technology Disciples Us: An Interview with Felicia Wu Song (Part Two)

Today, our digital technologies are discipling us in ways that outstrip what our churches are doing. Technology is outdoing the very Christian discipleship that so many of us long to engage. Each time we pick up the phone and text. It’s all those small things built into the way we relate with each other, the way we work, and the way we do church. It is a competition between the way technology forms us and the way disciples of Christ are formed.
