Midweek Message

LABC Update – Monday, April 4, 2022

Jim Hopkins

April 3, 2022


Easter is now thirteen days away. There is much to anticipate.

The relationship between theology and science is a nuanced one. In the article I am forwarding today colleague Mitch Randell reports on the recent Biologos 2022 Faith and Science conference.

I really like the quote from Oxford theologian Alistar McGrath  – “My theology will not tell me how far away the stars are and my science will not tell me why I matter.”  In his words I hear echoes of the the late paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould – “Science can give us the age of rocks. Faith can give us the Rock of Ages.”




Prayers for the week ahead,

Pastor Jim

The memorial service for Sheryl Gattey will be at LABC this Saturday, April 9, at 11:00.
