Talkin' 'Bout an Evolution!

So, this upcoming Sunday is the day I am scheduled to supply my annual "Auction Sermon." For those of you who do not know what that is, the Auction Sermon is a topic selected by the person who made the highest bid at the annual church auction to do just that. This year's topic: Evolution, Science and Faith.

Basically, the high bidder (Virginia Walker) has asked that I speak on how scientific discoveries are/can be integrated into a liberal religious faith. It is a good, meaty topic. However, this is also a special service and I would like to make sure that Virginia gets her money's worth. Therefore, I am solicting thoughts, comments, or ideas that you think might be useful for this Sunday. Please! I am begging you! If you can think of something, post away!

Also, I highly recommend that you check out the Daily Show Special Report "Evolution Schmevoltion." It is more nuanced than one might think and, yes, it is funny...
