New Truth

Dear Death Defiers,

James Dean was once asked what he respected above all else. He responded, ”That’s easy. Death. It’s the only thing left to respect. It’s the one inevitable undeniable truth. Everything else can be questioned. But death is truth. In it lies the only nobility of man (humans), and beyond it the only hope.”  Interesting words from the young Hollywood icon who died very young.

In Luke 24: 1-12 some great women of faith- Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Joanna, scamper from the empty tomb of Jesus to tell James Dean and the rest of the world there is a new truth. Death has been conquered. Jesus has risen from the dead and is on the loose in the world.

We begin a May sermon series this weekend called “Sheroes of the Faith.” Each week we will examine the incredible witness of women in the scriptures such as the fore mentioned Mary’s and Joanna.

Prayer for today – “ O God , let me rise to the edges of time and open my life to your eternity; let me run to the edges of space and gaze into your immensity; let me climb through     the barriers of sound and pass into your silence ; And then, in stillness and in silence let me adore You, Who   are Life—Light –Love without beginning and without end.”

Sister Ruth, SLG, The Oxford Book of prayer, George Appleton , ed., New York: Oxford University Press, 1985, p.8.

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
