4/1/2018—Since I deny the supernatural in principle, I am not much for the miracles of plagues and rising from the tomb. But I am all for impossible renewal, which happens all the time. I just saw Darkest Hour, which represents just such an instance.
We need a miracle to renew our public life. But the universe is full of the miracle of emergence—entities and events that surpass the elements that comprise them. Life is just such a miracle of emergence and so is freedom from Egypt and the Resurrection experience.
So, happy Easter and Passover to all believers and let all of us live in hope for a better time.
