On of my Facebook friends shared this and I, in turn, feel moved to share it here. It’s an extract from a sermon given by Br Curtis Almquist (Society of St John the Evangelist,  on 11 April 2004; a lovely piece for Easter I think.
“Wherever we bury Jesus, he comes back to life.
We can bury him in the Bible or in stained glass windows.
We can bury him in creeds and formulas and the heritage of our own tradition.
We can bury him in movies and plays and music.
We can bury him in our past.
We can even bury him in bread and wine.
And each time from each place he rises from the dead.
He sheds the words and images and walks right on out into the world.”

You can subscribe to a daily word email from the Brothers at the Society of St John the Evangelist, follow them on Facebook and Twitter. That's their monastery in Boston, Mass, in the photo above.
