But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body. While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them. The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.” Then they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb, they told all this to the eleven and to all the rest. Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles. But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened.
In our group, we pondered the questions: Where is love needed in this community or the world? Where do you see the hope of resurrection?
“I think with the resurrection, it wasn’t that people didn’t want to believe, it was just so hard to believe. To go and share something practically unbelievable is a risk. But that is how God’s love is.”
“Love is needed on the streets of this world; there are people who come from lives where they have no love. We have so much love to share, and there are people whose hearts need to be filled with that love.”
What are the corners of your world where love is needed?
