This world is not something to be endured, it is something to be redeemed.
It is not somewhere to escape from, it is somewhere to live in.
We need to move way beyond a view of resurrection that focuses on where we go when we die, because resurrection is about life lived now, as the future breaks into the present in ways that transform the lives of all those of us who long for restoration.
Germain Pilon (French, d. 1590), Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Marble, before 1572.
