Until we decide to stop seeing this moment as the end of history, until we start asking “what new world would we like to see born?” we are stuck in the apocalypse.
Easter tells us Jesus’ revolution of love won’t happen on our terms. Jesus’ resurrection asks you to hope, and to hold your hope in a direction you can’t control… The resurrection is a deep wildness in God’s mercy.
Jesus worked for, prayed for, organized for the end of the world where the wealthy, the connected, the privileged thrived on the backs of the vulnerable. Jesus wanted that world to end in his day. God wants that world to end in ours.
