Partial ResurrectionPosted: November 19, 2008
That i-Pod I dropped into the Pocantico River on my 40th birthday while letting Delilah get a drink following a six-mile run? On a whim I stuck it into my docking station last night and music started coming out. It was a miracle! Or at least a partial miracle because on closer inspection, nothing appeared on the screen. It lit up, but the screen was completely blank. On and on sang John Lee Hooker. Anonymously. Without attribution.
So now I’m a big believer in the Doctrine of Partial Resurrection. It may be heresy and I’d prefer if you didn’t mention this to my bishop. But the proof is in the i-Pod. I may get a monstrance for the thing and parade around with it for all to worship. Perhaps I’ll even charge per glimpse which would, of course, all go to a good cause: Father Tim’s New i-Pod Fund.
