This wonderful quote from Rowan Williams’ book Resurrection came in an Easter card from my friends the Sisters of the Community of St John the Divine:

We are called to live the power of the resurrection, to ‘actualize’ the risen Christ in his power to forgive, restore and transform human lives and situations.  To live in the fullness of Christ means that we are part of the energy that makes ‘all things new’; part of the energy that pours itself out in compassion on a wounded and unforgiving world; that refuses to be a part of the negative and destructive forces that surround us day by day.  It means, rather, that we make conscious decisions to ‘live and move and have our being’ in the renewing, life-giving and peace-making power of God manifest in Christ in the events of Easter.
