Some very nice work by my friend and BYU colleague William Hamblin on the “Resurrection Narratives”:
Ideal for reflection on this Easter weekend.
In the meantime, I’m scheduled to be the concluding speaker for our Easter sacrament meeting tomorrow, and I feel acutely inadequate to the task. If I could, I would love to evoke in each person there the spiritual and emotional impact that the relevant portion of the “Credo” of Schubert’s Mass in G has on me.
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. (2 Corinthians 4:5-7)
I just hope and pray that something of that light will shine through this particular earthen vessel tomorrow.
