I am honored to have an occasional column in The San Francisco Examiner. On Easter Sunday, I wrote about the significance of this day for people around the world.
Jesus’s life, death and resurrection fundamentally changed the world. Slavery, war and evil are still with us. But the human family regards these as horrors and not as the natural prerogative of the strong against the weak. We may not yet act as if every person is truly equal as a child of God but we are on the way to realizing Jesus’ simple vision. At its heart, this experience of the invisible, of transcendence, is the Easter dream.
