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.
Authentic faith doesn’t ask you to smile and pretend everything is okay when it’s not.
