Practice Resurrection

We’re  in the season of Easter, a 50 day season to let the implications of the resurrection sink deep into our living, a time to “practice resurrection.”  That lovely phrase was coined by Wendell Berry, a Kentucky farmer, brilliant essayist and poet.  It comes from his poem Manifesto: the Mad Farmer Liberation Front and you can read the full text here.  But here’s a little taste:

“So, friends, every day do something that won’t compute. Love the Lord. Love the world. Work for nothing … Love someone who does not deserve it …. Practice Resurrection.”
