On this very special episode of The Soul of the Nation, Rev. Jim Wallis revisits his conversation with Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the National Institute of Health, during this critical time of the Delta Variant of the coronavirus.
Rev. Wallis and Dr. Collins break down the current state of our country with COVID-19 and how the faith community can help with vaccine distribution and messaging. Dr. Francis Collins shares his journey of religion and science, and how he's found his harmony between the two.
"It's heartbreaking. Most people I don't think associate themselves with those extremes but they haven't necessarily found a lot of opportunities to discover the harmony. And one of my small goals here since I began writing about this was to try to put out there that this is an unnecessary conflict. In most polls to Americans [asking]do science and faith have anything in common? Can they get along? You'll encounter a lot of skepticism, which is hurting us as individuals, as families, as communities, and as a country."
