Gift...

"A monk in his travels once found a precious stone and kept it. One day he met a traveller, and when the monk opened his bag to share his provisions with him, the traveller saw the jewel and asked the monk to give it to him. The monk did so readily. The traveller departed, overjoyed with the unexpected gift of the precious stone that was enough to give him wealth and security for the rest of his life. However, a few days later he came back in search of the monk, found him, gave him back the stone, and entreated him, 'Now give me something much more precious than this stone, valuable as it is. Give me that which enabled you to give it to me' "

The Glad Scientist...

Reading the Walrus magazine recently I came across an interesting small article on The Glad Scientist, this article interviews and talks to a Jesuit priest. It is a small article discussing the unity between faith and science, the article is to small to tackle any of the heavy questions and arguments that are out there, but rather focused on this man's work in the field of science as a man of faith. I liked his thoughts: “Seeing the universe as God’s creation means that getting to play in the universe - which is really what a scientist does — is a way of playing with the Creator,” he says. “It’s a religious act. And it’s a very joyous act.”
