Rubel Shelly: Easter: The basis of hope

  • Comments

Dr. Rubel Shelly

I happened upon an article from last Sunday’s London Guardian. The column was written by an atheist named John Harris.

He wrote about religion’s “community of like minds,” a real vocabulary for speaking about illness and death, and a way of viewing life with “at least a semblance of coherence and meaning.”
