As we prepare for and celebrate Jesus’ resurrection, we must remember that Easter Sunday is God’s starting point for making all things new. We live in the “now and not yet” of God’s new creation. We are a new creation in Christ. The old ways are done. Through us, God is ministering reconciliation to the world—a ministry that will culminate fully in a new heaven and new earth.
How can you be a minister of reconciliation among those who are oppressed? Among those who are enslaved? Among the working poor? What hope does the resurrection bring to people who are suffering injustice in their workplace? To people who are chronically unemployed?
How has God transformed you during this Lenten Fast Food Fast? How will you pursue justice for those who work—and especially low-wage workers?
