New worldviews of a universe throbbing with life

The Lesson:

We inhabit a universe throbbing with life.
Everything changes: 
     planets, stars and galaxies - 
         atoms, molecules and cells - 
             flowers, trees and people. 
We come, we go. Everything comes, everything goes. 
There is life here. There is love here . . . and mysteries.
It’s natural. It’s astonishing. It’s even beautiful.


Our Task:

Today we live in a world of GPS and cell phones, computers and DNA.
Our footprints are on the Moon.
New journeys, new dreams, require new worldviews.

The stone age wordview is gone. Religion's stone age worldview, the three layer cake with gods above, humans in the middle, and devils below - is all gone. The puppet master hiding above the clouds, pulling the strings of the universe - is also gone. Our world now reaches far beyond the clouds and spans atoms, planets and stars, even galaxies.

Long ago, friends asked me, then a naive young priest and scientist, to help them reconcile religion with modern knowledge and science. Surveying the last 500 years of science since Columbus sailed, we set out to build a new worldview. We not only learned new things but sometimes re-learned the value of some old things.

Worldviews are unique, like fingerprints. You have yours. I have mine.
Here we will share and compare, and add others from Jesus to Einstein. 


Come, my friends,  ’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Come, my friends,

’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite

The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths

Of all the western stars, until I die.

It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:

It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,

And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

          —  Tennyson.   .   .

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
