A Story From Richard

Just days before I began “The Universal Christ,” I learned that my fifteen-year-old black lab, Venus, was dying. She would gaze at me as if to say that all sadness—be it cosmic, human, or canine—is one and the same. This realization softens our overly defended hearts. Knowing we all carry hurt makes it hard to be cruel to anyone—it makes us one.
