Our minds are not free if they don’t take us where our doubts take us. They are not free if we allow others to set the boundaries of what we can and cannot explore. We should search for what we think is true even if doing so challenges conventional wisdom.
The story of resurrection is not about Jesus alone. The story of resurrection is for those who would follow this criminal—and that is how Rome saw him, a criminal worthy of nothing more than humiliation and elimination. The story of resurrection is trusting that he told and lived a truth worth living. The story of resurrection is the story of Love rising and rolling away stones that entomb our spirit, our souls, and our bodies.
Another cool thing about my religion, if you would like to sign up, although I don’t have any forms, is that you can belong to another religion and belong to mine too. My religion is not exclusive. You can be a Methodist or a Jew or a Muslim or a Rastafarian or a Presbyterian and you can be a member of my religion, too.
