This chapter suggests that the object best suited to be thought of as organizing the Vineyard, and also of maintaining its internal diversity, is the diagrammatic logic of Gilles Deleuze. It goes on to suggest that the miracle can be diagrammatically understood as a specific arrangement of signs and forces that can be instantiated in different ways, and thus work to different effects. After visiting some of the implications for anthropological implications of assemblage theory and ontology, it closes by revisiting the discussion of worship presented in chapter one, and showing how in can be framed as being an actualization of the Vineyard’s diagrammatic miracles.

Keywords:   Miracles, Gilles Deleuze, Diagrammatic thought, Ontology and anthropology, Assemblage theory
