Death, Resurrection, and Eternal Life

Death, Resurrection, and Eternal Life

Our Wednesday evening faith and spiritual formation small group has been tackling this very interesting and often difficult topic. We have learned what the scriptures say (and what they don’t say), how the theology of resurrection developed in the early church, how the Eastern and Western churches took a different take on resurrection, how our theology of death and resurrection shows up in our liturgy, and finally, we planned our burial services.

We set all of this in prayer and trusted community, which allowed us to do this faithful work of exploring what we really believe, and what the church’s tradition offers us on that moment of ultimate healing, when we move from our earthly reality to our eternal reality.
