To be witnesses to the resurrection we must utter our 'No' to state-sanctioned violence, racism, oppression, injustice, and all that endangers life and creation.
Rare is the person who wants hell to exist because they need it for themselves. We need hell as a convenient place to put all the people we hate. As an option for ourselves and our loved ones, well, hell becomes a lot less popular.
We need an altar call that invites us into a third way and an aisle that leads us to the love of neighbor. We need a raised hand declaring the decision to live for good news that is good for all people.
