Nine Ways to Live the Resurrection
Carry the joy of the resurrection with you throughout the year.
By Therese Borchard
One of my favorite scripture verses is John 20:15, when Jesus finds Mary Magdalene crying at the door of the tomb and says to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" In that moment, Jesus isn't asking a rhetorical question. He wants to know why we worry and sob and fret when hope is underneath everything, if we could just tap into it.
Easter is about liberation, and it's especially meaningful for a person like me who feels chained to moodiness and negativity so much of the time. The celebration of the resurrection is a chance for us to say, "Yes, Jesus, I believe," and in so doing, grab the hope that is already there. Here, then, are nine ways we might live the resurrection.
