'Cursed is He that Removeth His Neighbour's Land-Mark': Ash Wednesday penitence for climate change

“As surely as if we were dragging marker stones around in the dead of night, each of us who contributes to climate change is depriving people of their land.”

As surely as if we were dragging marker stones around in the dead of night, each of us who contributes to climate change is depriving people of their land. That is surely a sobering thought for the beginning of Lent.

My quest to better understand the Bible
Dr. Ian Binns and Dr. Mark Bloom discuss how they came to hold a belief about science and religion being in dialogue rather than in opposition.

Former NASA engineer turned scholar-priest appointed Princeton Theologian in Residence (h/t Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey)

We often find ourselves saying, "My priest is so smart. S/he could be a rocket scientist..."

Well, we now have a priest in our diocese who IS a rocket scientist. The Rev. Dr. Kara Slade is a former NASA engineer, and we're thrilled to welcome her to Princeton!

We seek to carry out lives of compassion and charity, and to spread the good news of the Gospel to a world that is hungry for God.

Hello all! My name is Ian Binns and I'm one of the people who help run this facebook group. I've started a little project that I wanted to share with others. On July 3rd I started reading the Bible and plan to finish it in a year. My congregation was invited to participate. I've also decided to reflect on my readings every day and blog about it. I try to put up my reflections at least once a week. I wanted to share my blog with this group. I hope that people will look at my thoughts and perhaps even start a dialogue. My goal is to better understand the Bible for my own growth as well as so I can better defend it. Feel free to check it out:
