PRESENT RISENNESS
Engaging in "the savage confrontation" and expanding boundaries

"The life-giving Spirit of the risen Lord manifests himself…in our willingness to stand fast, our refusal to run away and escape into self-destructive behavior. Resurrection power enables us to engage in the savage confrontation with untamed emotions, to accept the pain…And in the process we discover that we are not alone, that we can stand fast in the awareness of present risenness and so become fuller, richer, deeper disciples. In the process we not only endure, but are forced to expand the boundaries of who we think we really are.”

-- Brennan Manning
