God is not dead. Indeed far from it. The resurrection of Christ is the power of God incarnate. In and through Christ, we have the source of hope and love. In him and through him, we have relationship to the creator of all that is seen and unseen.
Yet, the relationship is not one way, for, Christ sends us the gift of the father, which is the Holy Spirit who transforms and inspires us, renewing us and granting us new hope, fresh hope and powerful hope.
And its this hope which transforms our relationships with each other. It’s this hope which free’s us from the grip of poverty of relationship with each other. Free’s us from the poverty of addiction. Frees us into the liberty to be all Christ has us to be.
