2021 Season of Easter: Christ Sightings
“What is saving your life now?” These words were spoken by a wise old priest to author, Barbara Brown Taylor, and told in the introduction to her book, An Altar in the World. Though her answer to that question changes, the principle remains, she states. “What is saving my life right now is the conviction that there is no spiritual treasure to be found apart from the bodily experiences of human life on earth…What is saving my life now is becoming more fully human, trusting that there is no way to God apart from real life in the real world.”
Inspired by her book, we will be entering this Easter season reflecting on the way the resurrected Christ appears in our real life in the real world. How has Christ appeared to you? What story of Christ’s appearance do you have to tell?
“Jesus isn’t here, He’s risen from the dead. Go and tell the others” -Mark 16:6-7
