If you wonder about Easter…
About what happened or didn’t happen.
If you wonder about Easter
And what it means
And why it matters
There is this.
From the writings of William Stringfellow.
“In the face of death, live humanly. In the middle of chaos, celebrate the Word. Amidst Babel, speak the truth. Confront the noise and verbiage and falsehood of death with the truth and potency and efficacy of the Word of God. Know the Word, teach the Word, nurture the Word, preach the Word, define the Word, incarnate the Word, do the Word, live the Word. And more than that, in the Word of God, expose death and all death’s works and wiles, rebuke lies, cast out demons, exorcise, cleanse the possessed, raise those who are dead in mind and conscience.” (from An Ethic for Christians and Other Aliens in a Strange Land)
In the end, Easter is about vision and courage.
Vision to see the world as God sees the world.
And courage to live that world into being.
