A Message for Easter: I don't mean to be political but... and other thoughts on resurrection

If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

Sermon Notes

I make reference in this message to a pastor I sometimes listen to in the midwest. He’s a Methodist and the author of Seeing Grey in a World of Black and White — Adam Hamilton. Here’s the talk he gave at the Aspen Institute on partisanship and the pulpit. You will hear familiar words about the difference between politics and ethics in the church. A wortwhile listen…from Aspen Ideas Festival, Offstage.
