Your words were as a thunder clap to me today. The "economy of salvation" vs. the "litany of negativity" and the human drive for power. The idea that "death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered" is not new to me, but was re-revealed to me as a crash of thunder, with rumbling echoes in my mind, of the universal hope of reversal, transfiguration, working out that is to come (and is come!).
And your description of the resurrection as "the most radical questioning of what matters most, the most outrageous statement of what is ultimate, and the clearest most compassionate reticence about all explanations of purpose and meaning in the face of human suffering and the pain of all creation", well, I will spend a few days with that, as one who has seriously grappled with the thought, or the cry, "what matters?!"
Seriously, I am printing out this post to read over again, and will search out a version of the song to listen to.
Thank you.
