While taking a breath of fresh air and the first morning coffee, I just met Drayton Parslow. Every Monday he's full of inspiration from Sunday's worship, and goes for a prayer walk round the village - which mostly means round my Community.
Just to get the week off with a bang, I asked him why he's prepared to accept all the benefits that the modern scientific method brings us - poly-cotton shirts, smart phones, the Internal Combustion Engine - but dithers over medical science (he'll only go to a doctor if it's really serious, and prayer hasn't worked - or not in a "healed the ailment" kind of way) and rejects the Theory of Evolution - based on the same scientific method.
He tells me I'm not really wise enough to understand. Smart phones and artificial fibres are part of the scientific world. Whereas healing and Creation are where God works more directly.
He's right. I don't understand. Maybe I'm not wise enough.
