Resurrection Phobia

The Rev. Emily Heath (UCC)

When Jesus healed the dead man in Luke 7, the Rev. Emily Heath says that Luke noted "fear seized them all." The people had never seen anything like this. And in the same way even today there is a phobia about resurrection. We Christians live our faith knowing of the resurrection--new life is possible, we believe--but we often don't believe it when we see it.

Later Days

The Rev. Dr. Ted A. Smith (PCUSA)

Because we know war, and rumors of war, and the endless background noise of almost-war, we are ready to sing, 'dear desire of every nation, enter every trembling heart.' Because we are a people who live in deep darkness, we long to see a great light.
