Reflection for the Week - April 1

As Easter has just passed and we were more intentionally immersed in the death and resurrection of Christ, may this remarkable event and its significance remain with us in new and refreshing ways throughout the year. How grateful we can be that Jesus inaugurated the Kingdom of God, brought salvation to Israel and the world, was victorious over death through the resurrection, and opened the way into deep and everlasting community with God. On this basis, Easter is a daily affair that allows us to re-live the experience of our own release from captivity in Egypt; our own exodus, which will take us through the Promised Land and eventually into a new heaven and earth.
