the words ” jostling flotsam of an epic tidal surge of global custom and conviction, conquest, too” puzzle me, but if it is referring to the history of two thousand years since Christ’s resurrection, then I get it. The remaining paragraphs help me to be grateful for Christ’s revelation in the world today. I need to drop to my knees and be glad to join in the ancient cry The Lord is Risen….risen indeed!
