Easter is an everyday experience for those who need a personal relationship with another, which is all of us, for we are social animals. Relationships establish our place within community. They give us a sense of belonging and an identity. We know we are somebody because we are valued as a part of the whole. We live into our community when we become accountable to each other. Relationship establishes our accountability as a part of the present community. Resurrection is the light which enables us to see one another more clearly in the here and now. Any offer of eternal life is God’s offer; something that may be hoped for but nor realized in this life time. Bishop Charleston’s view of Easter and the Resurrection certainly offers us a great deal to think about. I for one am grateful for this offering. It gives me a broader and more hopeful way of thinking about this event in our lives.
