Where does significance come from?

“We seem to be impaled on the horns of a dilemma, a dilemma which faces every human being…

…the choice between finding significance in the history of mankind as a whole at the cost of losing any significance for the human person, or else finding significance for the individual human person at the cost of losing significance for the history of man as a whole. Is there any answer to that dilemma? There can only be an answer if it has an answer to the fundamental problem by which the dilemma is posed, namely to the fact of death. There can be no answer to that dilemma except that which has an answer to the fact of death. It is part of the Christian good news that in the death and resurrection of Jesus there is the answer to that dilemma.”
