Parades, Peeps, and Paradoxes -- Sightings (Martin Marty)
Easter Sunday is now past, but the season of Easter continues. The egg hunts and other phenomena connected with Easter are done, but at for some of us, Easter still speaks, for the resurrection stands at the center of our faith. Martin Marty's column, which came out on Monday, speaks to the way in which Easter is understood both in its "secular" form and its religious form. He makes mention of an article by conservative Catholic writer George Wiegel in the Wall Street Journal, which speaks to the rise of Christianity as being rooted in the inexplicable nature of the resurrection. I invite you to read Marty's article. Unfortunately, unless you are a Wall Street Journal subscriber you won't be able to read the articles referenced.In any case, I invite you to continue reflecting on the message of resurrection.
