"My House Shall Be Called
a House of Prayer for All People"
Rector's Easter Letter for 2017
Resurrection is irreplaceably central to the Christian story. St. Paul says in First Corinthians (15:12-19) “if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation has been in vain and your faith has been in vain.” The same urgent claim is no less present in our time, as shown by American poet/novelist John Updike in his Seven Stanzas for Easter:
Make no mistake; if he rose at all/ it was as His body;
If the cell’s dissolution did not/ reverse, the molecule reknit,
The amino acids rekindle/The Church will fall.
We who follow Jesus, and seek to do his will, turn not to a dead martyr or a tragic hero at Easter, but to a living Savior active in our own lives and known through the powerful Spirit of God at work in the world. The church lives because Christ Jesus lives – this is the Easter message, and resurrection is essential to it.
