Ever feel like you are all alone, venturing into unchartered territories?

Bird-watching is more than a hobby for me. It is a spiritual discipline, a facet of a life of prayer, an extension of my seeking, seeing, and hearing from the Spirit of Jesus. Not only do the disciplines of bird-watching and contemplative prayer appear strikingly similar, but I also see parallels in the tools as well.

This piece was initially featured in the December 2012 edition of the Lamp Post, the email newsletter of InterVarsity Faculty Ministry.

This article was the featured piece in the February 2013 faculty email newsletter, the Lamp Post. We are delighted to offer these video clips to our readers because we believe Jeff Hardin’s presentation offers Christian faculty who teach and pursue research in the sciences and technology an important perspective on their work.
