A couple of notes on this interview with Rob Bell by Oprah:
Here’s what I heard Bell say: “Things are headed somewhere — and that somewhere is good.”
Oprah asked him directly, “Are we ultimately headed to somewhere that is good?” He then refers to the Ted Conference at which only 2% of the attendees professed to be religious. Bell was struck by the fact that the speaker got a standing ovation when he said that “The moral arc of the universe is long but bends towards justice.” Bell seems to make the point that there is within us all an intuitive impulse that life has a point — It is the sense that there’s a reason to keep going.
