Thought for the Day: What does it mean for Jesus to be raised by the glory of the Father? Was the brilliance of God like a defibrillator, shocking the life back into the body of the deceased teacher? Maybe in some sort of deeply metaphorical way, but I believe glory is more than some bright light. Yes, it illuminates and warms and brings hope, but I think it’s more of a poet’s way of describing the essence of God. And if God is love, then maybe glory is love. And if you’re like me, you have seen powerful acts of love raise folks from the tomb of their suffering, grief, despair and anger. Spend a few minutes pondering the equation GLORY = LOVE. We’ll be talking more about it this Sunday.
Prayer: You have raised our spirits with your unmerited and amazing love, O Lord. Even the grip of death is set loose by the power of love. Amen.
