Easter: An Expansive Life

Apr 17, 2022    Rev. Sarah Clark

When the women find the tomb empty, they are stunned by the presence and words of the men in dazzling cloth - and yet, they remember. Even in utter shock, they return to their deep knowing and allow themselves to receive the expansiveness of the resurrection. Many of the disciples won’t open themselves up to this expansiveness and reject their testimony. Peter is curious enough to return to the tomb, and as a result, he is filled with amazement and awe. How do we carry forth what we have learned this Lent? Can we be curious enough to return and remember? Can we allow ourselves to be filled with expansive hope? Can we trust in the expansive promise of new life, and carry that promise with us wherever we go?
