Probability, Faith, Polkinghorne and You.

The Rev. Dr. Sir John Polkinghorne is a brilliant scientist and theologian. He believes in God. He also believes in probability over certainty.

One of the few sermons I remember my dad preaching was later published as an article. It was titled, “A Good Word for Doubt.”

I am grateful I was raised by a father whose faith was certain, but who honored and experienced doubt as part of his faith journey.

I thought of that when I read this really interesting exploration of probability and faith.

You can also listen to an interview I did with John Polkinghorne. This link takes you to part one of a four part interview. Enter Polkinghorne in the search engine ( to get the rest.
