Chocolate Teapots

April 10, 2017


Spoiler Alert - This hints at the outcome of Holy Week.


Perhaps there should be no Chocolate Teapots this week simply because who wants to preempt the enigma of Easter Day by talking of it now before we're hardly a step into Holy Week. You really ought to travel in real time through this season and pause everything to make space for the story and the belief for these are all there are.


Don't look for truth or fact or evidence. These aren't the things of Easter. Easter is purely and simply about belief. You can argue till you are blue in the face about the evidence of resurrection and empty tombs. However belief isn't based on evidence or fact or truth. Belief is based on what you can own in your life and the shape your life takes because of that belief.


Truth has almost zero to do with Easter and when you travel through Holy Week that becomes more and more apparent. From cursed fig trees to table turning, from betrayal to denial, from communion to crosses the whole thing is thoroughly shaped by an experience that gives you depth, love, life and a new sense of what is possible.


Throw away the evidence. There is none. Own the possibility. That's what believe is.
