We enter into the season of Easter – the season of resurrection. As we often begin new things in new seasons, we begin a new sermon arc – Fully Alive!
This is based on St Irenaeus’ idea that “the glory of God is the human fully alive.”
I wonder what happened to Lazarus – the narrative has been focused on Jesus bringing him back to life, that we do not hear of what happened to him after that. I think we are all Lazarus. An important question we need to ask ourselves is – what are we going to do with this new life we are given?
So this Sunday, we are going to start by talking about the Kin-dom of God. i have been asked many times why Kin-dom and not Kingdom, and i think it is good to unpack this as we proclaim that Christ is Risen!
Resurrection, as my mentor Rev Jim Mitulski wrote, is “a commitment on a daily basis to live life fully, and to make sure that everyone has the same opportunities to do the same.”
See you on Sunday!
