Thank you. Really inspiring stuff. And thought provoking too. I'm off to work out what that means for me in practice in my wee bit of the west coast of Scotland!

Amen and Amen. "Practicing Resurrection: The Gospel of Mark and Radical Discipleship" by Rev Janet Wolf was a study at United Methodist Women/nka/United Women in Faith Mission u events several years ago. I will always be thankful for being able to facilitate the study more than once and be in a learning session given by Rev Wolf. The immediacy of the Gospel of Mark is, for me, the meaning of Practicing Resurrection, that my response out of gratitude to all that God provides in to be active and immediate when the Holy Spirit moves. To be in prayer, in fellowship and in community with all the created worlds - all in God's Kin-dom. Thank you for sharing the Resurrection Mainfesto.

Having experienced this message live in Colorado Springs, I can say that I’m re-energized with this manifesto, and with the power of a most ancient creed, as a path to whatever is trying to be born among us in the household of faith. It does not yet appear what we shall be. ❤️DSG

Absolutely wonderful! Just what I needed to hear. I plan to share with my team to remind them of what we are to "be about" in our walk. Thank you for the specifics, "practice ressurection!"

Thank you for this. It is so timely and as always adds a new perspective to “what I already know or believe.” I am so grateful for the continual learning.

Thank you Diana. If only we could live inspired by Jesus death and resurrection as the apostles did as one in Christ and see each other as true brothers and sisters growing the “ kindom” here on earth.

Is Wendell Berry's injunction to lie in the field, similar to Walt Whitman's where he tells us to "lean and loaf"?
