Sunday afternoon, I heard a hissing noise as I walked out of the church office. After a brief search, I found the source. It was a bird that had a squirrel cornered. It seemed the squirrel must have been trying to enter the bird’s space, and the bird was not going to allow it. I watched this bird drive the squirrel out of its space.
It occurred to me that this is why there is so much unrest in the world. It is why the good news of Easter seems to fade into the background so quickly. We just don’t like to share – not our space and not our stuff. Given our human nature, it is not as easy as it should seem to practice resurrection – to practice reconciliation, forgiveness and hope – not just for our own lives but for lives everywhere. Jesus; however, calls us nonetheless to practice resurrection, with no thought of being perfect – or successful. How can we do that? Read the rest of the story in this issue of the Campanile.
