Alles het verander

“A quick thought as we approach Good Friday.-

Birth: the violent thrusting from safety into the great unknown. The ultimate decentering born out of love.

Death: the great discomfort of the paschal mystery. An end without an end. The great anxiety of non-being.

Resurrection: New life, where everything is the same and nothing is the same. Being both present and absent, seen and unseen.

Each year we are reminded of the horror of the crucifixion, we try to find meaning in it, to explain it away with atonement theories, to consider it simply part of the plan of some great puppeteer.

We look forward to the resurrection, when we can pretend everything is back to normal, forgetting that the temple curtain is torn, things are not as they once were.

How easily we forget that our call is to be reborn, not resurrected. To be thrust into the great unknown, beyond the walls of certainty. To be decentered, to be shaken to the core but to be the banner of hope for something new.”
~Nicole Anderson


Sy skryf so waar. Alles het verander met Jesus se kruisdood. Die voorhangsel het geskeur – geen skeidslyn meer tussen God en sy kinders nie. Onse Jesus opgestaan en Hy stap dwarsdeur die dood die ewigheid in vir ons!

Ek huldig Nicole Anderson se mening dat dit nie net ‘n kwessie van opstanding is nie, ons word geroep om hergebore te word, om totaal nuut vlagdraers van ewige hoop te wees.

“Staan op, staan op vir Jesus” meen Stefan Joubert is te passief, ons moet doeners vir Jesus wees. Nie net opstaan nie, moue oprol en Sy hande en oë en liefde in hierdie stukkende, vreesaanjaende wêreld wees.

Gesëende Pase.
