If I did have to have apologetics to offer, it would always come back to beauty. Who needs a system in a world with this much beauty? There is so much of it. It doesn’t seem like a stretch to believe God raised Jesus from the dead in light of the extraordinary elegance I see around me. There are more complex and more nuanced ways of saying that, but at the end of the day that is always what it comes down to for me.
I do not diminish the challenges posed to us by the evil, injustice and suffering in the world. But I still can’t get over the constellations.Jonathan Martin, “Constellations”
