Readings: Luke 24:1-8 & 2 Corinthians 4:7-18

Dear Friends, ”We do not loose heart!”  These are not sugar coated words.  It’s not a vague hope.  Paul is being brutally honest in these verses: things break. But the resurrection!?? Well – that changes everything.  It doesn’t prevent the breaking here on earth but it certainly changes our understanding of the breaking.  When we say ”Christ is risen!” it’s our joy to be saying that brokeness is NOT the final word.  Not hardly.  Christ is risen, indeed! Alleluia!

Peace, Pastor Dave
