I love this article. It gave me words to feelings and thoughts I’ve been having.
The Old Testament is, in the largest sense, about the building of a temple. In the New Testament, the temple is redefined as Christ’s body, built precisely to be torn down, tortured to death and radically reconfigured. Instructions to give up all one’s money, to leave one’s family and job, not to marry, to live as spontaneously as the birds and the flowers — all these things are iterations of a powerful sense that the old ways have been overturned.
Also, I love the design and long form essays of Aeon Magazine. Really brilliant stuff.
Here you go ‘Merica. Something special for your holiday.
Neil Patrick Harris and The Nerdist have teamed up to create Neil’s Puppet Dreams and this is the trailer. It looks hilarious, which I would expect from NPH.
