Life’s Big Questions

What is the good life? What is a good person? What should be honored? And how should we therefore live? Great literature earns the name by quickening and enlarging one’s imaginative capacity to engage these questions. It shows, rather than tells, the possibilities for love, courage, kindness, grace, justice, and redemption. It opens the heart, as well as the mind, by engaging our empathy and imagination, as well as our reason. It may well be the reason that Jesus told stories more than he delivered sermons. ~ Cherie Harder
