Pew Leaflet Sunday 2 April 2017

Death for Jesus was [not…] something to be conquered or overcome. Rather, death was a part of life, something to be received and then absorbed and transformed into a deeper, fuller life. This is why he challenged Martha to believe that he is the resurrection and the life. The truth is, when we allow the fear of death to take hold of us, we do not overcome death. Rather, when we grow afraid of death, we lose life. We become self-protective and we stop loving and living freely and openly and generously. This is why, as followers of Jesus, faith in resurrection goes beyond simply believing in life after death. It’s about believing in life here and now, in the midst of death, and refusing to allow death to rob us, or anyone else, of life. How can you release your fear of death today? (Sacredise)
