How do we deal with the resurrection of Jesus within our youth ministries? Of course, we talk about Jesus’ resurrection quite a bit (hopefully). But what does that mean? Do we get to experience resurrection now? Do we get to experience resurrection only in the future? Or do we somehow get glimpses and tastes of resurrection throughout our life? In chapter six of his book Relationships Unfiltered Andrew Root reminds us that we cannot speak of resurrection without also keeping in mind that it is an eschatological event–it is something that we look forward to in the future, something that we hope for.
If you’d like to hear some further thoughts on this topic, I will be on Andrew Root’s liveBlog today at 3:30 PM CST. It’s a quick fifteen minute show that you can listen to it live, or you can listen to an archive of the show later on the show site or through iTunes.
