We have been recruited, through the resurrection, to go into the Father’s “business.” It is the forgiveness business.
“Imagine that you and I, today, are a part of the Easter movement of civil disobedience that contradicts the empire. Let’s see what happens. Let’s see if life is longer than death.” — Walter Brueggemann, A Way Other Than Our Own
Prayer for Easter:
O God, who for our redemption gave your only begotten Son
to die upon the Cross, and by his glorious resurrection delivered
us from the devil and the power of death: Grant us grace to
die daily to sin, that we may live with him in the joy of his
resurrection; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
now and for ever. Amen.
