This is a talk I gave in Grand Rapids in February 2011. Here I explore how the Crucifixion has been reduced to a mythology and approach it as the incoming of the Real. For a brief reflection upon this idea click here.
In this talk I explore the role of Christ collectives as locations in which people undergo the death of God so as to enter into the return of God in the midst. In contrast to the actual existing Church, which generally posits God as a guarantee of meaning I interrogate the idea of God as that which breaks meaning apart and the Christ collective as the place that helps enables us to live without a compass or a map.
