Resurrection - the real deal

I actually met this man about twenty-five years ago. He's the real thing:
"Wherever we bury Jesus, he comes back to life. We can bury him in the Bible or in stained glass windows, in creeds and formulas and the heritage of our own tradition, in movies and plays and music, in our past. We can even bury him in bread and wine. And each time from each place he rises from the dead. He sheds the words and images and walks right on out into the world." 
–Br. Curtis Almquist, SSJE
