In October’s issue, we’re meditating on the question of life after the plague. As we move into the second wave of the pandemic, how might we attend to God’s presence in the darkness? How does God speak to us in the midst of sickness and corruption? As Lowell Friesen writes in his reading of Albert Camus’ The Plague:
“Sometimes the corruption is in us. Sometimes it is in the world. Christians ought to be particularly attuned to this dynamic.” Janet Ross, in turn, takes us on a journey through Exodus and the Egyptian plagues; Jane Barter sets a precedent for political change; and, Nancy Phillips shifts our attention to the liminal spaces in our lives, and offers that there may be more life there than we could possibly imagine.
