I am glad you are back!! You can read my "religionless" response here:http://susanmc.blogspot.com/Susan
Your question "Who is Jesus Christy for us today?". My answer, if we are talking about a "religionless" society or in global terms, would be that Jesus is a Teacher. Susan
Now that sounds like Easter: God at the center of life. I really like that thought, and I very much appreciate the distinction. It makes me want to think more about religionless Christianity. Or religionless anything, for that matter. I just like the idea of religionlessness!And it makes me want to read DB :).
I guess I still enjoy church (even on Easter) because it is still a place of vertical and horizontal connection. It is still a place where I sense God's love, and people's love, for me. Maybe church (for me anyway) is not so much a place of religion but a place of relationship.
I totally realize that church on Easter is meaningful for lots of people. I get that Bob and I like what you said: that it's about relationship for you and not religion. If I were to return, that would be my reason as well.
Hope I didn't come across wrong in my comment. I'd enjoying doing church with you Julie ... I wish more people lived out their faith the way you do. Your honesty and openness inspire me.Blessings, Bob
