Edmund Steimle: No Idle Tale

In his Easter sermon, Lutheran preacher Dr. Edmund Steimle asks, Were the women at the tomb just hysterical? We cannot just jump from Christmas to Easter with nothing in between. For those shallow Christians, let them remember Stephen dying of the stones, or Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Christianity is so much more than a crutch for weaklings. It’s like newlyweds looking at Niagara Falls and not understanding the power of the rushing water. The resurrection is no idle tale. It is the true power for the brave.
