Lessons in Absence

Experiences have a way of persisting beyond the initial contact. I’m sure we’ve all felt a joy or sorrow linger longer than the event that caused the emotion in the first place. This phenomenon of persistence has been aptly called Hauntology by French Philosopher Jacques Derrida. In this sermon we will explore the haunting quality of past events and examine the lessons these specters can offer us today.
