Gandhi’s Seven Deadly Social Sins, #5 Science without Humanity

In college and as a doctoral student, I learned a lot about how to do science. There was even considerable discussion of the dangers of pursuing scientific questions without considering the consequences. Although no set of unambiguous rules was defined, we learned how various thinkers addressed the issue and tried to formulate our own answers (remind anyone of UU philosophy).

It is clear that if science becomes all technique and technology, it quickly degenerates into man against humanity. If all we do is superimpose technology on the same old problems, nothing basic changes. Without humanity we see precious little real human advancement. We become victims of our own technocracy. All the old inequities and injustices are still with us. About the only thing that hasn't evolved are moral and ethical principles - the true north on the compass. Science and technology have changed the face of most everything else. But the fundamental things still apply, as time goes by. (Paragraph adapted from the book Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.)

                                Nature Is Everything There Is

Nature is more than our national parks and the flowers that bloom in the spring. Everything we have, everything we are, everything we have constructed and created on this Earth comes out of the resources of the natural world. Nature is everything. It’s all we’ve been given, and all we’ve got. Come celebrate all of nature as Daylight Saving Time begins and we consider what we can do to preserve and protect this precious gift.

                                                Pledge Drive Launch

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone in the congregation who could give more money would just increase their pledge by a thousand dollars or a hundred dollars or whatever the traffic will bear, and then we could be done with raising money and get back to the real work. Why not make this the year that happens? I’ll offer a sermon to encourage your thoughtful and committed generosity.
