You may be wondering why we are doing more thinking about faith, although quite possibly you aren’t. Faith is one of those extremely large topics that can be thought about and talked about with profit for a very, very long time.
Today’s sermons are a little wide ranging but one of the points I am trying to address is the absurdity of subjecting “faith,” in particular religious faith, to all sorts of tests that we would never put other non-objectively measurable behaviours through, e.g. loyalty, love, courage, etc.
I follow a number of very interesting people on Twitter and some of the most interesting are scientists. Now, many scientists have a very strong faith and don’t care who knows it. However, there are just as many, if not more, scientists who insist that science and faith CAN NOT be mixed and if you want to be a scientist you are committed to the objectively provable. One of the interesting things is the faith that is required to continue searching for a solution or a discovery or a particle; I make use of the famous Higgs boson and the search for it as another way to think about faith. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for your kind attention and, as always, I would be delighted to talk to you via the comments section about anything you find interesting or wrong or weird or . . . whatever, in these sermons.
