No Ghost Is He - Jesus Is Risen!

I love the readings from Luke 24.  Yesterday was the revelation of Christ after walking the road to Emmaus.  Today it is the appearance of Jesus before the eleven saying "Peace be with you".  

It has all happened so fast!  Betrayed, arrested, condemned, handed over, crucified, dead and buried - many were still reeling from the fact that Jesus had been done with and then gone so quickly!  And yet then there was the empty tomb with angels greeting the women asking, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen".  Next, two followers of Jesus walking to Emmaus are joined by another along the way, who spoke to them of the fulfillment of the scriptures - only after he broke bread with them did they realize they had walked and talked with their Risen Lord!  And now today, the Lord is present with his disciples to be touched and fed!  

Read this, know it, and believe it in your heart - "For nothing is impossible with God!" (Luke 1:37)

Alleluia!  Christ Is Risen!  The Lord Is Risen Indeed!  Alleluia!

Your calling
Praise the Lord, everybody!

David, I am way, way overdue in saying how wonderful it is to see you discern and embrace this new calling. I haven't been blogging or keeping up very well lately, but that in no way reflects any lack of enthusiasm for your going forward on this path!

Of course, it was also wonderful for all those years when you followed your lay calling ... I am excited to see what happens next! Much love to you & Chrissie from Connie
