Entangled: The series

Quantum mechanics reveals that at its core, the world is not as it seems – it is far more interesting.
In the quantum world, outcomes are counter-intuitive, differing from what we expect based on our everyday experiences. The particle physicist Richard Feynman remarked that this means we seem to have to walk “a logical tightrope” when we talk about a quantum system.

Sawatsky lecture.

We live in a world of permanent tensions and contrasts:  poverty and wealth, terror and beauty, political strife, warfare and hope for peace.  How shall we sing, pray and live in such times?   The ancient psalms are, as they have been in every age, profound sources of insight and spirituality in response to this question.  By tracing the images and rhythms of lament and doxology in the Psalter, we encounter the mystery of God and the full stretch of humanity. How can Christians pray the Psalms with Jesus today?
