Easter (2017.04.16 Sermon)

April 17th, 2017

John Chandler

John Chandler reminded us that, wherever we come from, it’s good for us to hear the Easter story again..

Quotes and links mentioned:

  • The trees are coming into leaf
    Like something almost being said;
    The recent buds relax and spread,
    Their greenness is a kind of grief.

    Is it that they are born again
    And we grow old? No, they die too.
    Their yearly trick of looking new
    Is written down in rings of grain.

    Yet still the unresting castles thresh
    In fullgrown thickness every May.
    Last year is dead, they seem to say,
    Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.
         — Philip Larkin

  • The resurrection life is a practice. It’s not something we practice like practicing musical scales or practicing our golf swing. It is practice in the more inclusive sense in which we say a physician has a practice—work that defines both his or her character and workday. — Eugene Peterson
  • Prototype, by Jonathan Martin
