As I was digging into Pseudo-Dionysius I went to Chicago for business. I met with Cress who is a good friend from Denver and we chatted over lunch. We shared stories and I told him some of my immediate impressions of Pseudo-Dionysius’ work. As we discussed the Divine Pattern that each of us can choose to follow or choose to ignore in favor of our individual egos, he shared the analogy that many Christians have come to associate with the term ‘sin’.
For most of human beings, we don’t roll out of bed in the morning with a daily plan to wreak havoc and destroy others.
