Genuine Christian faith is Easter faith. Faith in the Risen Jesus! Sing Hallelujah! It is not first faith in a book. It is first faith in a person, another human, one like us and let us admit thankfully, not like us. Easter faith is faith in the faithfulness of Jesus. It is faith in his shalom message. That message addresses head-on the problem of human violence and the God of Love. The resurrection gospel is where love conquers all. Love wins. This is the voice of revelation, it is the voice of Jesus, it is the voice of God, the Voice that opens our eyes and ears and sets us free.
