As you could probably imagine, my thesis is suffering under this “creative frenzy”. I have a church to build. We have a church to build? It calls to me…
What then, of the thesis? Well, the vision did seem to indicate I will yet finish my thesis… however, visions aren’t to be trusted as literally true.
So what would it take for me to finish my thesis?
A Miracle. That’s what.
There are two possibilities. One, I finish it before 1 December. Damn-nigh impossible. Two, they actually allow me to finish it next year, hand it in “when I’m done”. They were being so difficult this year already, I cannot imagine what they will do to me if I’m not finished on 1 December. That is more impossible.
So what is a miracle? The seemingly impossible happening. With a subjective experience of meaning attached to it.
Finishing my thesis, will be a miracle. I’d have to be thankful, if I succeed. Thankful? Where does one direct thankfulness? To some abstract idea? Can we personify this idea and call it “God”? I should definitely also thank the people around me that made it possible, through their contributions. Might we call the inspiration of their contributions, the fact that they care, the love or compassion that encouraged them, might we call that “God”?
