Welcome back to Lockdown everyone! And welcome back to our discussion of creation and where it all has come from. How do you square a loving God with an often brutal creation? What about nature red in tooth and claw? We look at how loving means allowing freedom to the beloved, explore the concept of tsimtsum and wonder ‘what are we to make of all this?’ It’s a bit of a quotefest, and more than a little mind-mangling at times. But if you need cheering up, listen to the ending!
