Why Eagles Fans are so Crazy?

Subtitle:  What is the Good Life?

The Good Life is often thought of in terms of individual achievement or happiness.  Moses, in the book of Deuteronomy, offers a different version of the good life.  The pieces (family, health, food, meaningful work, rule of law) are likely the same as today, but the big difference is how they are framed.  They are framed in terms of a community, a community ground in God’s faithfulness to the past and the present.  The good life isn’t about finding someone to love or something to do but finding our place in a community, something bigger than ourselves.

And yes, all of this explains why Eagles fans are so crazy.

Based on Matthew 5:21-26 and Deuteronomy 30:15-20
