The actions of Easter are the message the preacher and the church celebrate week by week:
The purpose of the church and its ministry, the most important thing that pastors do, is preach. All your theological training – all for the purpose of giving you the guts to make an apocalyptic announcement: God has won a great victory. The bloody, crucified Lamb rules. Join up, or else stay stupidly out of step.
If you go to church tomorrow I trust you’ll hear that.
From Will Willimon.
