opening words

The Paradox of Faith

Religion is the vision of something which stands beyond, behind, and within the passing flux of immediate things; something which is real, and yet waiting to be realized; something which is a remote possibility, and yet the greatest of all present facts; something that gives meaning to all that passes, and yet eludes apprehension; something whose possession is the final good, and yet is beyond all reach; something which is the ultimate ideal, and the hopeless quest.


British-American mathematician and philosopher and a central figure in the process theology movement (see page 30). From Science and the Modern World (1925).

Creating Family Rituals
In this age of crowded calendars and hurried meals, families can still make time for meaningful interactions by creating their own rituals. /BY MEG COX

Seeing God as Process
Philosopher and theologian Charles Hartshorne saw the universe and God as a benevolent and dynamic whole composed of interconnected processes. Is the world really made up of "evanescent events" rather than "enduring substances"? /BY GARY KOWALSKI
