I like your own combination of scientist and Christian church-goer. There are no churches here where I live which would appeal to me, so the many books are my companions.
The Internet is great in that people from all places of the world get together to condemn all the violence and also often help victims disregarded religion and "race".
What is going to happen? New tensions in the Middle East don't look good. Are there any spiritual beings keeping an eye on us? Some think so, others not.
Will Jesus come back? Why not, if the rest of us do too, but that is to be seen by us all, if we do or not. Re Jesus returning, did he really say he would come out of the cloud? Or has that been added? Maybe he is an alien!!!
This is where it gets a bit strange, to say the least. Then again, skipping from church dogmas to UFOs is not as big a step as some skeptics see it. They choke on both!
I am glad not to believe in "science without religion" or "religion without science" to quote Einstein. Both are needed for balance, but maybe one day in the future they will merge.
