John Klassen (TWU Professor Emeritus of History) used the stories of Julian of Norwich (c. 1342–1416) and Petr Chelcicky (c. 1390–1460) to explore the wideness of God’s mercy. Their spirituality set examples which challenged the patriarchal and violent religious fervor of late Medieval times. Julian had a vision of something no bigger than a hazelnut which represented all that God has made, loved and continues to preserve – as theological cosmologists may consider the seed for the Big Bang. Petr’s counterpoint to the revolutionary Hussites was that if you destroy evildoers, the Devil simply leaves their hearts and enters yours! As Christians, we can unite to share our group memory of how God’s Salvation makes all things well. [KH]
