What is Eucatastrophe 101?
“Eucatastrophe” is a word-invention of my favorite author, J.R.R. Tolkien. It means “good catastrophe.” Tolkien coined it to explain the unpredictable redemption that is won in the midst of unimaginable loss. Although he claimed that every good fantasy/fairie story must contain eucatastrophe to be believable, his standard was not fiction. He learned from the Great Eucatastrophe, the Story that all others wish they were.
This blog is committed to finding and spreading joy through the Great Eucatastrophe… through the person and work of the incarnated, crucified, resurrected, and now exalted King Jesus.
For a taste of Ecuatastrophe check out my sermon…“Good Friday–the Great Eucatastrophe”.
