For Easter, we’d like to call attention to today’s sermon by Dr. Bob Cornwall, author of Ephesians: A Participatory Study Guide, Ultimate Allegiance: The Subversive Nature of the Lord’s Prayer, and Unfettered Spirit: Spiritual Gifts for the New Great Awakening. It’s titled Unbelievable News.
Why is this such unbelievable news?I like the way our friend Bruce Epperly puts it:
The resurrection will always remain a mystery, hidden from rationalists, Enlightenment-thinkers, and literalists. It is always more than we can ask or imagine.
Too often, when we try to explain the resurrection, we end up domesticating it. And when we do this, we miss the deeper message.
