- This week's articles:
- www.bbc.com/news/uk-31965758 for details of a project to make ordinands fully conversant with the debates between science and religion, and how the Anglican way has always (despite a a few blips!) supported a constructive dialogue between Christian faith and research science - and obvious example of this is John Polkinghorne, Anglican priest and formerly professor of mathematical physics at Cambridge: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Polkinghorne
- http://madeleinedavies.co.uk/2015/03/19/why-journalists-cant-afford-to-ignore-religion/ for the need for modern journalism to grasp and understand religious faith in order to analyse the modern world.
Love from Jack
