You Gotta Show Up
The risen Jesus was not a ghost, and to show his disciples that he was bodily present, he does a very basic human thing - he eats. In doing so he demonstrates his embodied presence, in the flesh, tangible in the room with them. Likewise we are called to offer an embodied presence in the world around us, beyond our thoughts, our ideas, our words. To follow the example of the risen Christ is to show up, hunger and all, scars and all, and be physically present in the world we live in.
