Pop-up Resurrection

Random thoughts this morning take me to the many reported appearances of Jesus in risen mode in the days immediately following his crucifixion. Jerusalem, Emmaus, Galilee – suddenly manifesting in locked rooms, on open roads and at lake shore barbecues. Sometimes for a few brief minutes, other times for longer conversations.

Now you see him. now you don’t. Apostle Paul speaks of no less than five hundred witness events during these days.

What are we to make of these occurrences? When we listen to them as witness accounts that emerge from re-tellings from within faith communities in various stages of transition, we see more deeply than our habitual newspaper conditioned reading.

Resurrection is an experience, not a laboratory specimen. So let’s get on and live it!

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
