Welcome to our Capitol Area South District website!
Over the years, as I prepare for Easter Sunday, I wonder why the woman, in Mark’s story of the resurrection, did not say anything to anyone. I know the story is that “they were afraid.” But who else can truly tell the story? They are witnesses to the resurrection. They are involved in it.
One of my favorite quotes in regard to Easter is by the late Dr. Peter J. Gomes, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals at Harvard. He wrote,
“…the resurrection is a continuing event which involves everyone who dares be involved in it. Easter is not just about Jesus, it’s about you. Jesus has already claimed his new life. What about you? Easter is not just about the past, it’s about the future. Your best days are ahead of you. The proof of the resurrection is in your hands and in your life.”
So, how can we be involved in the resurrection? How do we become proof of the resurrection?
