This is what it means to be genuinely human. Easter offers us the direct route to be the people we were made to be. God’s people. Jesus’ people. People of love.
N.T.Wright was the guy that said you should celebrate the 40 days AFTER Easter a ton more than you mourn and weep the 40 days before Easter. I’m going to try to think about the 40 days after more than I thought about the 40 days before. This seemed like a good quote to kick that off.
