  •  eerie how close this diary was to today's church (2+ / 0-)

    Just got back from church a little while ago and it was eerie how much this diary mirrored it.  One of the speakers even mentioned Eostre, and most of the sermon was about how spring is a time of renewal and how renewal/resurrection is universal from Osiris/Isus to Persephones to Christ to Passover to Buddhist to Spring.  How even though the Christ resurrection story is made up it is still a useful allegory to reflect on.  I don't usually go to church but it was very interesting and sounds like you'd fit right in.  It's a very progressive church.

    Happy Spring.
