Coming Back

The spiritually inclined neuroscientist
wrestled and wrestled with resurrection —

had to face the stark reality — when
the brain is dead, that is it. There is

no coming back. So, if true, what then
is “coming back”? The disciples ex-

perienced the “coming back” of Jesus
— in a room, on the road, by the sea —

the same but different, recognizable
but ubiquitous. Is this resurrection —

coming back? Love embodied for the
sake of those on this side of life? Love

comes back and love goes forward and
so even though the brain dies and doesn’t

come back, love always does — some-
how embodied, recognizable but different —

ubiquitous — everywhere, in everyone —
Christos.
