Christians in some times and places have sought to construct around themselves a kind of pious cocoon. Christians have, for example, shielded themselves from scientific conversation lest a too-limited worldview be threatened. But if God is to be “seen” in the reflection of our humanity, we need to engage the full scope of human endeavor—unshielded by cocoons of carefully (and fearfully) constructed pieties.
