The Pastor's Post
“Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”; and she told them that he had said these things to her” (John 20:18, NRSV).
A few years back I was participating in a pastor’s Bible study group and we went to Pastor Barry’s house for study one morning. The text we were to look at that day was the resurrection story from the Gospel of John. Pastor Barry read the text and after he finished said, “I haven’t prepared anything else to assist with the study of this text because what else is there to say about this passage?” We ended up talking about some other Biblical texts, church matters, community concerns and then we adjourned for lunch. That moment of Bible study has always stayed with. Do we really know John’s resurrection passage, and the resurrection story, so well that there is nothing else to say?
No! We don’t know the resurrection so well that there is nothing more to say. Easter is so much more than any of us could ever expect. Jesus is not spared the agony of death or the tomb. Yet, with faith filled belief we know that Jesus lives! Death is overcome. God offers resurrection. And while resurrection can be hard to reason our way through and get our heads around, the more we think about it, the more there will be to say about it.
On Easter Sunday – April 16 – we will celebrate the resurrection and have much more to say about Easter at the Sun City Sunrise Service that United Church leads at the Sun Bowl starting at 7:00 a.m. (the choir provides gathering music starting at 6:30; a reprisal of the Palm Sunday cantata). Then we will gather for worship at 10:00 in our United Church sanctuary. At both services, in varying ways, we will lift up the belief that God grants new life and we celebrate that new life through the story of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Where ever God’s never ending, eternal love, embraces us, we can know the gift of new life that God offers. How are you experiencing that new life this year? Let’s celebrate it together on Easter Sunday.
