What Was Accidentally Triggered by the Crucifixion

Easter is here! But like much in life, Easter is more paradoxical than it seems. Jesus was loyal but was betrayed; lived a spiritual life but died a political death; and preached a gospel of non-violence but died violently. Perhaps the most paradoxical part of the Christian story is that in killing Jesus, his persecutors inadvertently triggered a resurrection that changed the world forever. And the resurrection proved that before we can be healed, we have to be wounded; and before we can experience the joy of what has been resurrected, we have to experience the grief of what has been lost. But now there is the joy of new beginnings! And the blessed lesson of starting all over again right now!
