    Thank you, Erin. Your particular strength in theology is that you ask questions, rather than provide answers, and that you are open to the questions of others. I, too, find Streufert’s idea of sacrifice in the act of creation to be profound. If we look at the multiplicity of potentialities available just prior to any act of creation (music, art, writing, dance), we discover that the actuality of that creation is a sacrific of all the potentialities except one – the actualized act. We must say No to everything except that which we are saying Yes to. (Although maybe God can encompass the multiverses, in which all potentialities become actualities, and for God there is no No?)

      In sacrificing the many other potentialities at the creation of anything, is the sacrifice always or ever permanent?

      Hmmm…is that a strange way to look at resurrection? The intentional withdrawing of sacrifice so potentialities at creation can be brought back to (possible) life?
