resurrection people

‘The intermediate hope, the things that happen in the present time to implement Easter and anticipate the final day-are always surprising because, left to ourselves, we lapse into a kind of collusion with entrophy, acquiescing in the general belief that things may be getting worse but that there’s nothing much we can do about them.  And we are wrong.  Our task in the present… is to live as resurrection people in between Easter and the final day.”

-N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope
