Call & No Response.  All Souls, NYC, 2010.

“The mystery of life is comprehended in meaning, though no human statement of the meaning can fully resolve the mystery. The tragedy of life is recognized, but faith prevents tragedy from being pure tragedy. Perplexity remains, but there is no perplexity unto despair. Evil is neither accepted as inevitable nor regarded as a proof of the meaning less ness of life.”

— Reinhold Niebuhr, “Optimism, Pessimism, and Religious Faith”
