Easter Quotes: Ann Voskamp – “The second Adam recreating all the universe”

From Ann Voskamp’s 2011 Easter blog entry  “…and out of the black”

The cornerstone of Christianity

is this rotting cell sparking,

a heart valve quivering in the pitch,

a beetle scratching in the black while

convex chest cavity shudders,

sunken death inflating with His hot breath,

atoms of the second Adam recreating

all the universe.

Can you feel it, within, in your darkest places?

He is alive! And in us!
