Wounds and new life: the ultimate visible witness.
Wounds and new life: what God, in Christ, is all about.
Wounds and new life: what life in Christ is all about.
Wounds and new life: our visible witness.
For forty days we have been privileged to experience our sisters and brothers’ wounds; real wounds of separation, exclusion, denial, and betrayal; wounds which now made visible, once led and still might lead to professional, personal, and relational death. Real wounds – visible wounds – like those the risen Christ showed to the disciples.
Visible Witness is helping us see that the wounds of some are the wounds of all.
In Christ, wounds are not our final experience. New life is. New life for wounders and woundees together in the wounded and risen One, Jesus Christ; healed life enabling us to live healing lives.
The risen Christ’s visible wounds are the witness to new and resurrected life. Wounded, revived, made new and made one by our baptism into Christ, we can do nothing less than rejoice and be glad together so that, bound and made one together.
Wounds and new life in Christ: our visible witness. Thanks be to God!
