The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the centering place of our faith. Without the resurrection of the crucified Christ, our preaching, testimonies, lives of discipleship are in vain. This is what Paul told the believers in the new Christian community assembled in Corinth.
For I handed down to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that, He appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.—St. Paul1 Corinthians 15:3-8 NASB.
We would also like to offer you and yours an Easter song, “Christ is Risen.” I wrote the song in a folk genre. While the spiritual song is probably more beats per minute than what I would select for a service I would conduct, it is a song for listening, and, maybe, for praying. It is the story of how the resurrection became an explosive light of salvation that is spreading around the world. Listen for the voices of children along with my accompanies, Cindy Gibb. We had a splendid group of musicians for this song. I pray you are nourished in some way by it. This, too, is our Holy Week gift to our readers and our friends, and any who will visit our humble page.
