Description

A biblical exploration of how we can bring new life out of the death and destruction we find all around us in the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Why bother with the interpretive categories of biblical faith when in fact our energy and interest are focused on more immediate matters?

The answer is simple and obvious. We linger because, in the midst of our immediate preoccupation with our felt jeopardy and our hope for relief, our imagination does indeed range beyond the immediate to larger, deeper wonderments. Our free-ranging imagination is not finally or fully contained in the immediacy of our stress, anxiety, and jeopardy. Beyond these demanding immediacies, we have a deep sense that our life is not fully contained in the cause-and-effect reasoning of the Enlightenment that seeks to explain and control. There is more than that and other than that to our life in God's world!
