Denying and affirming


Do I deny the resurrection?  Okay, this is time to fess up.  Yes.  I do.  Of course I do.  Everyone who knows me knows I deny the resurrection.  And I do deny the resurrection every time I do not serve my neighbour, every time I walk away from people who are poor.  I deny the resurrection every time I participate in an unjust system.  And I affirm the resurrection every now and again when I stand up for those who are on their knees.  I affirm the resurrection when I cry out for those people who have had their tongues torn out, when I weep for those people who have no more tears to shed.
