The story we hold to be true is absolute absurdity. Complete madness. Why would God die? How is this even possible? It is outrageous. And by crucifixion no less! Only the scum of the earth, the most base of beings, the failures of humanity are given over to such humiliation. What being is this, what essence is this that would succumb into weakness, having no longer autonomy, no longer wholeness, no longer life when at the very word of his mouth all creation came into existence? Who by […] Continue reading →

I cannot get enough of the Book of Revelation. I’ve always been fascinated by it but mostly I struggle to understand it. I’m assuming most of us would. There were times when I would be drawn to ponder the vivid and frightening imagery and try to make it fit within my worldview which unfortunately was influenced by the American “Left Behind” culture. To no one’s surprise, Revelation never did fit this formula. It refused to get in that box. Thank goodness. As […] Continue reading →
