This message I stand in trust, in hope, in confidence, in joy that in real life I am invited to transcend the limits of who I am, embrace the Christ presence within me, and give in love to others – to the least of these, and even to those who wish me harm.  This is the new seeing of God, of who God is in me, the God is not a noun but a verb calling me to live in a new way.   Such seeing calls me over and over to keep moving beyond the boundaries and limits I place on others and myself and see in a new way that Jesus lives.  We have seen the Teacher! And the more deeply we live this calling, the more we can and do make God visible among us (Spong).  This is, I believe, our ongoing work as the followers of the Way, the Jesus way, the Christ way; it is a life-reordering process, not a one-time event long time ago.  Resurrection moments all around us as we see in new ways.  And the more deeply we live this calling, the more we can and do make God visible among us (Spong).

Let Easter open your eyes.  Let Easter’s power free you to live fully, to love wastefully and to become all we are meant to be as Christ followers and as a community of faith so that others too may live fully. Life now is expanded beyond our imagination, and love is unlimited.    The boundaries of death have been broken.  The tomb is empty.  This is resurrection!
