Resurrection Sunday.

The church of Jesus Christ is a fragmented bunch.  It seems we look for ways to separate, everything from music to doctrine keeps us from trusting each other and worshipping together. 

But on this one day of the whole year, the church that takes the name of Jesus the Christ as it’s own, agrees together that if there is no resurrection from the dead then there is no Christianity.  You can not call yourself Christian and deny that Jesus beat death.

As the morning hour worked its way around the world, Christians followed each other to places of worship to reaffirm the truth that He is Risen, just as He said He would. 

And so, Linda and I read this prayer together this morning, perhaps in unison with millions of other believers:

Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever more. Amen (The Divine Hours-Phyllis Tickle)
