Happy Easter

To all my fellow Christians, whether exodus Catholics like myself or progressive Baptists like my wife, I wish you a Happy Easter.

Even in my faith struggles, I always take comfort in believing that there is something greater than us and find solace in the kind of radical expression of love that comes with the sacrifice represented by the death and resurrection of Jesus.

If nothing more, it is a comforting story that eases that existential anxiety and despair that Kierkegaard has called the "Sickness Unto Death." And I am grateful for that comfort today.

Funny, I've never been referred to as a "progressive Baptist" (or as anything at all for that matter). Guess that's a good description, though. I like it.
