Moment of Resurrection

From Richard Beck at Experimental Theology
As a psychologist I often wonder what people mean by "resurrection." It's a word that gets thrown around a lot and I often don't know how it is being "cashed out," psychologically or experientially. What does it mean to experience a "moment of resurrection"?
For my part, the experience of resurrection is freedom from the fear of death in the giving our lives away to others. More succinctly, love is resurrection, the moment where we move from death to life: "We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death." (1 John 3.14)
