Acts 10.34-43; Psalm 118.1-2; 118.14-24; 1 Corinthians 15.1-11; Mark 16.1-8


It involves letting go of what's dead.


It is a new beginning - new life - something entirely outside of our prior experience - it is transformation - it is change.


We all want it - but can we let ourselves receive it - take in the good news and be changed forever?

What if all that we have built doesn't come with us?
What if it isn't what we imagined it would be?
What if it asks something of us we aren't able to give?

"Do not be alarmed;

you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth,

who was crucified. 

He has been raised;

he is not here. 

Look, there is the place they laid him.

But go and tell,

he has gone ahead of you,

and you will see him,

just as he told you."
