Is my life significant? Is my existence meaningful? Does the universe possess some greater purpose within which my life best finds its meaningâ€“or do I have to construct my own meaning for my life? Whether consciously or subconsciously, these questions about our existential meaning (the meaning of our existence) are among the most fundamental questions we humans ask ourselves.Â â€“Â Christian J. Barrigar,Â Freedom All The Way Up: God and the Meaning of Life in a Scientific AgeÂ (Victoria, Canada: Friesen Press, 2017), vii.
Today’s post arose from a conversation with Christian J. Barrigar at this summer’sÂ American Scientific Affiliation‘s (ASA) Annual Meetings. Christian serves as the pastor of an Anglican church in Montreal and the volunteer coordinator of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship – Canada’s Graduate and Faculty Ministry at McGill University. And yes, he follows the Emerging Scholars Network’s online ministry 🙂
At the ASA Annual Meetings, I asked him to share material from Freedom All The Way Up: God and the Meaning of Life in a Scientific AgeÂ with Emerging Scholars.Â Christian provided not only several quotes / summaries of material fromÂ Freedom All The Way Up, but alsoÂ a quote from a recent article published in ASA’sÂ Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith. I pray that Emerging Scholars will find these “snapshots” provoking thought and discussion.Â Thank you Christian! [Read more…] about Snapshots of “Freedom All the Way Up”
