The content of this video might be a little intelletually heavy for some. Certainly the video production is less than ideal, but the content is well worth reflection. Dr. Michael Murray, Executive Vice President, Programs, John Templeton Foundation, has been a close friend of mine for many years. We’ve enjoyed hours of dialogue over subjects like the one presented in this clip.
