Nearly 15 years ago, Rev. Michael Dowd (who spoke to us in the spring) and others started introducing concepts such as ‘Big Time’. They wrestled away from us a very rigid relationship between time and history (that placed human beings at the center) and replaced it with a cosmology that is much bigger than us. What if we were to explore our past – and our future – through such a cosmic timeline? Would we still find light in the time of darkness? Birth in an unexpected place?
