180- The Sunrise of Your Life

The Sunrise of Your Life

“What has Easter become for you?”

Is Easter just another holiday that has been stripped of its meaning? Is it a sacred day of the year where we must pay special attention and make a bit more effort toward our spiritual walk? What if both of these extremes miss the point?

In today’s podcast and post we pull back and reframe Easter in a way that allows all comers to access it’s beauty and transforming power. Join me now as we see beyond the conversion to a religion, and into an inner awakening to the Sunrise of our life.

4- Subverting Death

 

What does it mean to subvert death?

Subversion literally means to “turn from beneath” or to undermine authority.  Subversion is a transfer of power that doesn’t come by might, but by another kind of power.

So often the Easter story is reduced to an appeal of historical data. This limits the Easter story to a clean up job for our naughtiness. In this weeks broadcast, I will offer a much bigger Easter story and prove that subversion, everywhere we see it, is the ongoing effect of dying in order to find new life. This means Easter is everywhere, all the time.

Join me now as we learn to see the resurrection beyond everything.

83- Liberation despite Sin

 

Easter is the time where the Jesus-O-Meter is pegged into the red zone. Pastors focus on the historical aspects of Jesus story in order to elevate substitutionary atonement. We’re told that if we believe, we will be free from our sin. Yet our sins remain. Is it possible that the church has made Easter about the means and not about its purpose? In this podcast and post I will show that the real purpose of Easter is not to remove sin, but to liberate us from the countless systems that imprison us despite our sin.
