Critical Review
On the front is Jesus in his glory, having recently defeated death for himself and for all believers. Mere humans are shocked and awed, scurrying away. On the inside is a “hey, wat’cha gonna do?” shoulder shrug about the flow of history and her tellings. “Let’s not worry about it. Let’s just do the best we can do.” Again we see the author’s monomania for Something Deeperism: we’re not going to figure it all out; we can’t get all the angles; but that’s not the point anyway. Mixing modern and ancient systems for understanding reality (History & stories / Time & Chance / God & Fates, but with the modern subversion of God as a “her”) furthers the Something Deeperist vision: none of these human constructions–neither the ones that now seem quaint and gone, nor the currently fashionable ones–really KNOW (because, subtext: they are all just human constructions). Again, as a platform for the advocacy of Something Deeperism, the card works; but as a Christmas card, not so much. People don’t want Christmas cards to challenge cultural norms. They want to gently flow along with cultural norms into a friendly little “hello”.
