[Χριστος Ανεστη! Christ is risen! A most joyous Easter to all my Christian relatives and friends!]

"Jesus's resurrection is the beginning of God's new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord's Prayer is about." -- Rt. Rev. N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church (2008)

[I disagree with Bishop Wright on some important points, but this passage, along with some others by him that I've read, speaks to me.]
