We look for reasons and places to find hope. Here's a bg one. Each Sunday we celebrate. This first day of the week marks a phenomena so spectacular it impacted the entire world. A man whose heart had stopped, whose lungs ceased breathing, whose eyes stopped seeing, ears no longer heard and whose leaden body lay in a stone crypt, suddenly came to life. This event shattered the laws of the universe - once you are dead it’s over. All over. Until you are dead there is hope but not after. Man never had an answer to mortality. But everything in our soul says there’s something to follow death. Earlier, superstitions fabricated all kinds of weird possibilities. Now, with the resurrection of Jesus, hope for existence after this life becomes more than a desire. It is a fixed hope.
