Easter Sunday

 

We had a blast celebrating Bread’s second birthday along with an estimated 2.2 billion christians around the world declaring the risen Lord this Easter Sunday. But what is it that stops us from living fully in the light of the resurrection? We took a look at  the historical/intellectual, cultural/societal and experiential/personal reasons that might be stopping us from celebrating this world-upending, life-changing thing everyday. 

 

Ephesians 5: Men & Mutual Submission

 

Paul continues to expound on what our new humanity looks like. It looks like mutual submission- everyone putting everyone else first. In particular he concentrates on those who in his day wielded more power - those for whom being Jesus-like would have been particularly counter-intuitive and counter-cultural. Everyone thrives when no one is threatened and each looks to promote the other. This is the beauty of Christian community.
