Creation is a great risk, and a kind of ultimate risk—it’s the willingness to take a stand with no evidence and no propping and no proof. It’s hard to provide evidence, or make any real argument for a place where life can show up as a creation, but it is in that domain that the full world available to us in being human can be explored and lived. To be alive is to be at risk, to be free is to be at risk, and to be powerful is to be at risk.
