A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching - From chaos to hope (chapters 25-26)

From chaos to hope (chapters 25-26)

A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching

Episode eighteen looks at chapters 25 and 26, which cover a huge range of profound topics, from cosmology to personal union with the Tao.

In this episode, I start by sharing a bit about how the simple practice of making my bed every morning has become a spiritual liturgy for me, reminding me every day of the character of a God who brings order from chaos. The rest of the content is divided into four parts:

1. Lao Tzu's cosmology versus Ancient Near Eastern views on chaos
2. The hierarchy of the universe
3. Living in union with the Tao: beyond pessimism and optimism
4. Three keys to hope: union, contentment, and meaning
