The human experience is breathtaking

Surgeons methodically operate on a half-dozen patients and then tell jokes at dinner.

Parents throw children high up into the air that are more valuable than all the money in the world.

Astronauts in space play with floating water on web camera to students in a classroom.

Hikers fall asleep on mountains under the stars.

Royal kings and queens in the image of God eat chili dogs and watch baseball.

We experience the epic so casually! The human experience is breathtaking! The angels must shout at us from their perch!


Part of what makes humanity humanity… to be finite… to be small and created… and to live in wonder of God and life and creation and drama and beauty around us… is to use dramatic hyperbole, myth, exaggerations… We ironically need overstatements because life really is more wonderful than the language we have for it. Epic indeed.
