“I have seen the Lord”
Alleluia! Christ is risen. He is truly risen. Alleluia.
Two passages from Paul stand out for me when we reflect on the resurrection. Not, this time, the obvious ones from Romans or 1 Corinthians. Instead, these two:
For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not “Yes and No”; but in him it is always “Yes.” For in him every one of God’s promises is a “Yes.” For this reason it is through him that we say the “Amen,” to the glory of God. (2 Corinthians 1:19–20)
For it is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)
In these darker times, perhaps we need to hear this “yes” of God as never before.

Website + Biblical Study tours
The menu problem on the website has been resolved (there is still an issue with the site map — be to looked at later).
The updated website has full details on the Oberammergau (Passion Play) tour. The dates are 1-5 August.
Even fuller details can be found for the biblical studies trip to Turkey, 24 September – 4 October. The sites are wonderful and our guiding text will be the First Letter of Peter, which was written for Christians in this general area. Below is a picture of the restored Church of Hagia Sophia, not the one in Constantinople but in Nicea / Iznik, where the church council was held in AD 325.
