Easter Afternoon

Well, we had a wonderful Resurrection celebration!  Thanks to all the musicians, readers, singers, and of course all of you who joined us.  The two book references I made are here for your further consideration:

The Reason for God by Timothy Keller, especially the chapter on the resurrection.

The Resurrection of the Son of God by N. T. Wright.  As I said in the message, Wright’s ideas on some matters (most famously the meaning of justification) are controversial, but this book has amazing resources on the subject of resurrection.

Four Easters into my ministry here, and I still getting used to Easter being a lower than normal Sunday since so many of our students are gone, and so many others travel over the break.  But it was very encouraging to see so many with us, and to hear such enthusiastic singing throughout the morning.  Of course, we had lots of reason to be enthusiastic!
