We speak of time in three ways or modes - the past, present and future. Every child is aware of them, but no wise man has ever penetrated their mystery. Paul Tillich

The Eternal Now is also a short set of sermons to seminary students by the Christian theologian Paul Tillich. The title of the package is taken from Sermon Eleven: The Eternal Now'. In that sermon Tillich is trying to understand Physical Time while also being aware of the existence of a Spiritual Time. He struggles with the contradictions of what he calls the Eternal Now (what we would call Spiritual Time) and the Temporal Now (what we would call Physical Time).[1]
