Artisans of hopefulness, mostly anonymous and unremembered, have long lived and loved and extended hospitality beyond the legal fictions of so-called sovereigns and nation-states. Prophets and poets have announced a wider economy of human meaning than power mongers can afford by questioning the dark yesterdays of official histories in the name of brighter tomorrows. Jesus insisted that this wider economy is coming and is already among us, ever ancient, ever new. When we sense its movement, we allow ourselves to be moved by it. The question of caretaking begins to inform our doing and speaking and spending. We take care differently and gird ourselves with a mindfulness and begin to outnarrate the murderous and plundering powers that know not what they do. Such determined mindfulness has a way of changing everything. Resurrection happens.
The Sacredness of Questioning Everything

The Collect for the Fifth Sunday of Easter:
Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant
us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way,
the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his
steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ
your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity
of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
