In a culture that perceives Christianity and science to be incompatible, it’s “critical” for Christians to understand that all of creation points to a divine Creator, hymn writers Keith and Kristyn Getty have said.
“[S]o much in our culture is dead set in thinking that Christianity and science are at odds with one another,” Kristyn Getty told The Christian Post. “But we need to be students of our doubts and our questions and have the confidence to follow through with them.
“Christianity can hold up to them. We don’t need to worry about it toppling over. It’s important to figure out what our doubts are and have the courage to ask deep questions because sooner or later, our faith will be tested. It’s critical for us to know who it is that we believe in and what we believe in.”
The Irish-born songwriters recently released “Consider the Stars,” the theme song for the upcoming film “Against the Tide: Finding God in an Age of Science.”
Penned by the Gettys and Fionán de Barra and sung by Kristyn Getty, the song is a contemplative lullaby that includes the lyrics: “Consider the stars in the sky/When it is darkest they shine out the brightest/Consider the stars in the sky/In every anguish, Oh, child take courage.”
