The Second Iteration

by Donald T. Williams

"Et iterum venturus est"; "And he shall come again." —The Nicene Creed

There are lots of things God does that are worth doing again: sunrises, sunsets, seasons. He is faithful and consistent, and they do not fail. He is also infinitely creative, so each one is new and different, and they never get old. He repeats, but he is not repetitive. (There is a lesson here for human artists: mere novelty is not really all that creative.)

This pattern will reach its climax in the second iteration of the Coming of his Son. That is something to ponder.
