Video Service: Socrates, ‘The Matrix,’ and the Color Blue

Carole Hawkins will lead our service with a message by guest speaker Phillip Baber entitled “Socrates, ‘The Matrix,’ and the Color Blue”

How can we trust what we think we know? In this sermon, Phillip won’t answer this question, but he will explore the problem of knowledge, how limited we are in our ability to understand our own world, and how we might begin to expand our perception of reality.
