Renewal: What the Whole World’s Waiting For
While we’re thinking about Easter and the resurrection, here are some gems from N. T. Wright:
Redemption doesn’t mean scrapping what’s there and starting again from a clean slate but rather liberating what has come to be enslaved.
What creation needs is neither abandonment nor evolution but rather redemption and renewal; and this is both promised and guaranteed by the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. This is what the whole world’s waiting for.
