Walter Brueggemann

Last night I got to so and hear Walter Brueggemann speak at a church in Memphis. For those of you who don't know, he is one of the top theologians in the United States today.

I won't get too in depth about what he spoke about, but I will share a few highlights:
  • The power unleashed by the ressurrection is a threat to those in authority. It signifies a 'regime change.'
  • When Jesus conquered death he "unleashed health in the world."
  • "We celebrate that the mystery of Easter contradicts the way we thought we would live our life."

I have yet to process through all of the things that he said, but I just needed to share my excitement at such an opportunity.
