Reflection 12.9.16

The vocation of humans is to enjoy their emancipation from the power of death wrought by God’s vitality in this world. The crown of life is the freedom to live now, for all the strife and ambiguity and travail, in the imminent transcendence of death, and all of death’s threats and temptations. That is the gift of God in Christ’s Resurrection.

~William Stringfellow, Count It All Joy
