Can we begin to experience the resurrection in our ordinary life on earth? Bishop Jake Owensby says yes as he re-examines the biblical concept of resurrection and how Jesus’ resurrection influences his followers every day.
A resurrection-shaped life:

  • Finds hope through honest reflection on the past.
  • Discovers meaning in suffering.
  • Moves beyond shame and blame toward self-acceptance and compassion.
  • Emerges from loss and regret to find contentment and joy.
  • Develops forgiveness as a habitual way of life.
  • Transcends “us-them” divisions to form inclusive community.
  • Draws strength from the hope of life after life.

The Resurrection-Shaped Life explains how we begin to experience resurrection in Christian practices such as repentance and forgiveness and discusses how new life emerges from our small deaths: suffering, shame, regret, and loss.
