Happy Easter! Christ is Risen!
On Sunday, March 31st, our Easter message, “Dead is dead, right?” was from 1 Corinthians 15.12-26 as we reflected on the need for Jesus’ resurrection to be real as we look ahead to our future. You can listen to it on Christ Community Church’s sermon website (or in the archives).
John Updike’s poem, “Seven Stanzas At Easter” is a reflection on the same biblical truth: the resurrection was, is, real!
And what does it all mean for us today? Bob Robinson offers a few good reasons that line up with 1 Corinthians 15 over at Re-integrate.org; be sure to check out the book recommendations if you want to do some more thinking on the subject.
This post is a follow up to a sermon preached by Rev. Chelsey Harmon at Christ Community Church in Nanaimo, BC on March 31, 2013.
