Connecting Faith 6-12-18 | Hopeful Meetings | Andrew Root on Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies
Let’s be hopeful and prayerful about the results of two big meetings that have happened. The first between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and the second a meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention. We need discernment when hearing secular press coverage, and we need to be mindful of all the difficult realities that are current barriers to true progress.
Andrew Root, author of Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science, challenged us to be honestly open to the real questions kids are having instead of just repeatedly giving them answers to questions they are not asking. It is critical to bring story and narrative and interaction with real, Christian scientists to bear on the question, can I be a smart, scientifically-astute person and a person of faith?
