Mystical Atheism? Sightings
It is Good Friday, a day that for me has rich theological meaning. Many Christians around the world will gather to remember the one whose death on a cross serves to reveal to the world the extent of God's love for that world. Good Friday and Easter can be explored historically, but the ultimate meaning of these events must be understood through faith. So, perhaps it's with a bit of irony that I would be sharing this essay about atheist Barbara Ehrenreich's recognition of the mystical. In the essay we learn that one of the things that Ehrenreich lacks is vocabulary to express her experiences. As a believer, I am thankful that I do have vocabulary, but I think we can learn something from her experiences -- there is more to reality than meets the eye!
