Rev. Pattiann Bennett provided our reflection for Resurrection Sunday or Easter. She made the point that we each have the capacity to participate in the resurrection in small ways throughout our life.  That when you choose to trust after having your trust broken, you experience a resurrection of hope; when you choose to find hope in what has previously been a hopeless situation, you experience a resurrection of faith; and each time you choose to love again after a love is lost, you experience a resurrection of spirit. 

The resurrection is the central focus of our faith - without Christ's rising from the dead, we would have no faith, no hope of the everlasting life promised through Christ.  And we can remind ourselves of this when we state, "He is Risen" by responding not just through the words, "He is Risen, Indeed!", but through our actions.
