Yesterday we celebrated Easter.

There are a couple of narratives that make up the day but the one that stands out most is the narrative of Jesus being raised from the dead. I always wonder how much we really believe in the narrative. Is it just a day for tradition to take control and bring some sort of childlike joy to the young kids? How much to we connect with the story?

The Bible records that the believers are represented in Jesus’ resurrection:

Romans 6:4 “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Ephesians 2:6-7 “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:1-2 “Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.”

My only question is, “What part of my life is resurrected in me?” And, “How would it affect the world around me?”

For Jesus, we still witness and experience the effect of his resurrection. But, what about the effect we should also have? I only am asking questions for consideration because I think that the idea of Easter should be more culturally powerful than filling a church’s parking lot with cars and an empty field with eggs for a particular day.

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
