Over at Experimental Theology, Richard Beck is making a few arguments I find compelling - the first: A defense of Halloween.
Followed by a snippet of a theology of monsters, including Frankenstein's creature, vampires and the like.
A morsel to share:
We are fearful of becoming monsters. We fear the "monster within" that we are barely able to hold in check. I am the monster. Or, at the very least, I fear that the line between me and the monster is very, very thin and fragile."
Makes me want to take a Sunday school class on monsters. Wonder if I could convince my small group to read Bram Stoker alongside C.S. Lewis? Hmmm...
Just my thoughts,
