“resurrection is mind, body, and spirit, not just a floaty ghosty thing”

This is the second to the last paragraph in an article by Jeff Gill on the need for churches to focus both on spiritual and physical health.

Body and spirit are not in opposition: at least in traditional Christian teaching, the body is not a curse or a mistake, but a gift. It is how we experience the gift and blessing of creation, which is why resurrection is mind, body, and spirit, not just a floaty ghosty thing.
