For many of us, Easter raises anew the question, “What do we believe about the resurrection?” That befuddling word “believe” again! We’ve used that word so often in creedal or doctrinal statements that it’s easy to think of it as only having to do with some sort of mental activity–like we’re asserting the “facts”–asserting something that can be proven measurably. Thankfully, this year, I’m more aware of other perspectives, i.e., “to believe” means “to trust” or “to be-love.” My head doesn’t know what to do with “asserting the facts” when it comes to “resurrection”–but my heart knows exactly what to do when it comes to “trusting” the resurrection or to “be-loving” the resurrection. I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Death never has the last word. Alleluia! Christ is risen!
