"Some of it is simply natural - an embryo becomes a baby, becomes a child, becomes an adolescent, becomes an an adult. Where did the child go? Transformation, indeed. Explainable through biology? Yup. Miraculous? Yup, that too. A bulb to a tulip, an acorn to an oak, a drug addict to a productive citizen, a grief stricken widow to a blushing bride, a cancer patient to a cancer survivor."
Rev. Karen Gustafson, "Easter: An Invitation To Transformation", First Unitarian Society of Madison, April 24, 2011
