I like Dr. Anthony Fauci. He has become famous with the coming of the pandemic. He was important earlier around the AIDS epidemic. He is a scientist and an infectious disease specialist. He tries to explain the Virus, the vaccines and community spread . He is an internet sensation as well. Some people do not like him, and have sent death threats to him and his children.
One of the things he often says is ” that we must follow the science”. This is to give us confidence that science will bring us to the end of the pandemic. We have to do studies, and verify the evidence before going ahead. Science has to lead the decisions about public health and government policy. This makes sense to me.
But science is always changing. How many times has Mr Fauci had to change his mind and policy, as they learn more about the Virus. In the last year, everything is brand new about the Virus. Science does not lead in a straight line.
Is this how we approach God, and follow God ? God does not change, but our understanding of God’s love does. We must be willing to see the world differently. This is why I do not see faith and science being at odds with one another. We are always moving towards, and changing to the Great Creator. Both faith and science lead me/us to God.
“Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book.” Psalm 139:16
Salaam and strength for our path of life and faith,
Soaring like Vultures
lifted up by unseen Hands
Trust, silent enters my fears
