Copacetic is a wonderful old word. However it can be much more than just a nostalgic smile.
Superficially, copacetic is characterized by a 1950s mellow. But when you look below the surface, copacetic is a potent dynamic. It challenges precise definition, though its closely related to the concept of shalom, which speaks to peace and completeness. Copacetic then becomes powerful without being glitzy or calling attention to itself. Its subtle, but people appreciate it immensely, especially in the midst of chaos and life is chaos all the time. Copacetic is much more than the sense that everything will be OK. Its a deep, rich, joyful, wise response to difficult circumstances. When an everyday encounter become copacetic, it takes a leap beyond our normal experience. Its as if we experience an injection of knowledge, wisdom, or insight often with mind-boggling results.
Copacetic in action was modeled most dynamically when God became human. In our day, copacetic God-people almost always leave good things in their wake. This good stuff is rarely fireworks-spectacular; mostly it feels like warmth in a cold, dark place or like a sigh of relief in a storm or a salve on soul-wounds. Copacetic people have spunk and vigor, but they recognize when their faults need forgiveness. When theyre at their best, human beings are copacetic.
In this book, well explore what copacetic means as it transforms chaos into an adventure.
