Rod Dreher has become a significant voice –I think an honest voice (with whom I frequently disagree – different political viewpoints…) – and he is now leaving the Dallas Morning News to head publications for the John Templeton Foundation. Dallas’ loss…
I know little about the John Templeton Foundation. Here is what they say about themselves, from their Mission Statement:
Our vision is derived from Sir John Templeton’s commitment to rigorous scientific research and related scholarship. The Foundation’s motto “How little we know, how eager to learn” exemplifies our support for open-minded inquiry and our hope for advancing human progress through breakthrough discoveries.
It’s this phrase that captured my fancy: “How little we know, how eager to learn.” It reminds me of what I wrote recently on this blog about the quest for learning that drives me to keep reading books: KEEP LEARNING — there’s always the next new thing to learn.
I’m going to assume that the John Templeton Foundation diligently seeks to live up to this mission. It is a noble quest.
All the best to Rod Dreher. Keep Learning.
