Ed Markey drew a sharp distinction Tuesday night between math and arithmetic. And all our stories today have this theme of God and life defeating Sin and Death. They are heading in one direction. We have sons coming back to life. We have widows getting back their places in society. In today's story, indeed, Elijah restores the hope a widow by raising her son from death. The name of this collection comes from the Lou Reed song, Heroin. Remember the Sunday school stories? Particularly Elijah and Elisha, both of whom raised the dead. In the other direction, at the same time, you have another crowd — the crowd following a widow as she goes to bury her only son. Luke reminds us that Jesus is like the prophets of Israel. Two of the wildest stories listed in the long list of One Story's recent list of top ten favorite short stories are from Denis Johnson's cult classic Jesus' Son. Harlem woman dies jumping from 8th story window with son in her arms.
