Easter Sunday seems long ago now, although we are still firmly inside the Easter season. I came across the following quote by Margaret Silf writing in America. It offers something to think about over the course of the following year:
Easter is a time to look forward. Too often the Christian story is told backwards, as if it were solely about God's rescue mission, God's parachute, bailing us out of the wreckage of our sin. Easter is the time to change the direction of our gaze and see the rescue mission for what it can become: an invitation to participate in the great adventure of becoming the people God is dreaming we can be and of transforming planet Earth into the seedbed of God's kingdom.
