A blessed Easter to all! May you be surprised by hope! At the moment, my sense of time is gone! Celebrated the Paschal Liturgy at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Hong Kong. This is one short verse I reflected upon, in preparation.
“Jesus’s resurrection is the beginning
of God’s new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to
colonize earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord’s
Prayer is about.” ― N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope: Rethinking
Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church (HarperOne, 2008) page 293
Through your pilgrim-presence here on earth, how are you “colonizing earth with the life of heaven”?
