The Psalmist’s exclamation “this is the day that God has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it” is an appropriate affirmation for Easter Sunday and every day. Affirmations like Psalm 118:24 create a lens through which to view your life and the world. They proclaim that God is moving within our lives, working for good. They remind us that celebration, gratitude, and radical amazement are at the heart of the spiritual journey. Celebration, not fear, holds the key to the future and our ability to confront illness, injustice, and hatred.

God & Possibility

Question: 
Is God, in process theology, the ground of all possibilities? And if so, are all possibilities actualized in God?

Dr. Cobb's Response

In general I have avoided the more technical metaphysical issues in these discussions. We want to talk about process theology and that brings the focus on the "So what?" questions. How God relates to us is certainly central to process theology. The metaphysical status of eternal objects not obviously so.
