Easter: The World of New

How different is the gospel of reconciliation from a gospel of Manifest Destiny? How different is the gospel of reconciliation from a gospel of American or religious exceptionalism? How different is the gospel of redeeming evil through forgiveness and love from a gospel of conquering evil through violence? How different is the gospel of chancing one’s arm from a gospel of drone strikes. I’m afraid the Easter chicken has become just one more chicken.
What we need is a whole new way of thinking, a new world mentality. Paul tells us that the new creation has come. If we are to live and practice the gospel of reconciliation, then we must adopt a new creation mindset.
The Rev. Check Queen. in  The Gospel of Reconciliation, Part 2 of his blog, A Fresh Perspective.
Having the mindset for a new creation, I Declare World Peace.
