Rev. Dr. Joseph M. Meyer

Host Ed Sutkowski talks with Rev. Dr. Joseph M. Meyer who is the Senior Pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church. Pastor Joe received his Doctor of Ministry in Homiletics – the study of composition and delivery of a sermon, including all forms of preaching, viz., sermon, homily and catechetical instruction. He discussed his view as to the beginning of the world, the role of religion and the composition of the human brain – 90 billion neurons linked by 100 trillion synapses as contrasted with the WWW’s 20 billion pages and 1 trillion links – as detailed in “Brain Bugs,” Dean Buonomano’s 2011 best seller. Pastor Joe responded to Buonomano’s view that “…religion’s most precious offering may be that is has served as a permanent oasis of hope and consultation in the face of harsh realities.”
