A Resurrection Beyond • Evil, Faith, and Fate

The Rev. Morgan Allen
April 3, 2022

Evil, Faith, & Fate (’Salem’s Lot, part II; Mark 10-13; and The Dead Zone)

So that we do not lose the opportunity to consider the character of the Rev. Donald Callahan as we met him in 'Salem’s Lot, we will adjust our syllabus for this Sunday to explore “Evil, Faith, & Fate.”  Mingling The Rolling Stones and Charles Baudelaire with Fr. Callahan’s dramatic confrontation with Kurt Barlow, we will continue our discussion of faith and evil. Moving forward in Mark’s Gospel, we will then take up Jesus’ apocalyptic vision (comprising most of Chapter 13) and make connections with Johnny Smith’s foretelling headaches and handshakes in The Dead Zone.
