12.15 Resurrection Hope in a Pandemic World
For the session to be discussed on April 12, 2020
It is Easter and we are discussing a text from Colossians. In the text, we find a call to focus on the risen Christ and to center our lives on him. How do we find and live into Easter during a pandemic?
- Bert mentioned a prayer by Brian McLaren for use while washing hands:
God of healing and well-being,
As I wash my hands I ask you
To cleanse me of other invisible viruses
Of the soul:
Fear, hate, pride, greed, lust, hostility,
Supremacy, superiority, selfish interest,
And all constriction of the heart.
As I join billions of others in this practice,
Help me feel how deeply we are all connected
And equally, infinitely loved by you.
— Brian D. McLaren
