By Rev. Nancy Neal

After the grand celebration of the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday, we are ready to get down to the business of being the church in the world — of being Christ's body in the world. We see a world that is broken and in need of God's restoring love and grace. The way things are isn't the way they have to be, and guided by God's already-present reign of justice and peace, we have the tools to help us. As followers of Jesus, being church in the world means living as a resurrected people. Renewed and emboldened by the Spirit of Christ, we engage the world around us prayerful, hope-filled, encouraged, inspired, and imaginative about how things can be when infused by God’s saving power.

Rev. Nancy Neal is associate for Denominational Women's Organization Relations at Bread for the World.
