Resurrection – The Great Turning

OPreach

Shall I be part of the great turning, or will I simply sit it out on the porch? Shall I be part of the great turning, or will I simply sit it out on the porch?

Cosmic change is not cosmetic change. It is radical, meaning β€˜to the root,’ and it will mean the upheaval of our cherished customs and the disposal of stories that have provided the basic framework for our lives. We must not underestimate the enormity of what is being asked of us, even as we celebrate with joy the new and salvific. In its initial moments resurrection is indistinguishable from death. At first we are unable to see the great turning that has taken place. All that has been comfortable, all that has held us in place is gone, and there is nothing recognizable to stand on. Everything on which we have planted our feet is swept away.
