QUOTE FOR TODAY

The quote for today is from Search for Truth: Lenten Meditations on Science and Faith by John Polkinghorne.

“People are sometimes surprised that I’m both a physicist and a priest. They think there is something odd, or maybe even dishonest, in that combination. Their surprise arises because they do not understand that truth matters quite as much in religion as it does in science. There is an odd view around that faith is a matter of shutting one’s eye, gritting one’s teeth and believing impossible things because some unquestioning authority tells you that you have to. Not at all! The leap of faith is a leap into the light, and not into the dark. It involves commitment to what we understand in order that we may learn and understand more.”


  1. I won’t always have a quote for the day, but sometimes I like a quote I come across and think that it is worth sharing.
