God’s Goal

God’s goal, it seems to me, is the same as in creation. It is the making of persons, not the making of a uniform mob, which means there is clear diversity and a kind of open-endedness in all of nature. In other words, heaven is precisely not uniformity.

Reality Is Both/And

As long as you can deal with life as a set of universal abstractions, you can pretend that the binary system is true.

Reality requires more a both/ and approach than either/ or differentiation.
