resurrection-orthodox-iconIt struck me last night during the resurrection service that this (the present: the people with us, the icons, the worship, the resurrection that takes place always “today”) is all there is- no past, no future, no something else to come- and it is eternity to the extent that we can see it. When we anticipate what is to come we are not anticipating the future, but rather we anticipate the progressive opening of our eyes to the reality of the present kingdom. Christ is Risen!
