The deepest story of Easter is "Time's up!" 1/
Time is up for religious hypocrites who are complicit with systems of injustice. 2/
Time is up for men who refuse to believe women when they preach Good News. 3/
Time is up for empires that claim ownership over the bodies and souls of human beings. 4/
Time is up for Caesar. 5/
Time is up for those who would exclude others from God's table of hospitality. 6/
Time is up for the rich who think they are superior to the poor. 7/
Time is up for violence. 8/
Time is up for all systems, rulers, dominions that deal in death. 9/
Time is up for suffering. 10/
Time is up for injustice. 11/
Time is up. 12/
But, a new time has arrived. Here. Now. The reign of God's life in this world, embodied, fully alive. 13/
A time for feasts. For a new table set in the wilderness. 14/
A time for abundance. Where the gifts of all creations are enjoyed, shared, cared for, stewarded. 15/
A time for "salvus." Salvation -- healing, wholeness, shalom. For the world. For all. 16/
A time of milk and honey. Of the lion and lamb. Of mercy and justice kissing one another. 17/
A time of love of God, of nature, of neighbor. 18/
Easter marks the end of one time and the beginning of another. The life of the age to come has burst forth into the world. The big bang of God's dream of justice. A new creation. An uprising of love. 19/
Powers of pretense, injustice, violence, and death: Time is up.
But the awaited time has arrived. 20/
So, my #EasterSunday greeting is #Enough! Time's up!

And welcome to the uprising.
