who's afraid of easter?

(click on the title to listen or if you have iTunes, subscribe with one click button to right) Welcome to the show for Sunday, October 2, 2005. Today’s sermon is entitled “Who’s Afraid of Easter” and was originally delivered on Saturday, March 26, 2005 at 11:00pm, Easter Vigil.

A short public service announcement before the musical intro: If you’re a regular or new and curious listener to A New Christian Manifesto, you will likely have an interest in a conference organized by the Every Voice Network, Anglican Voices United for Justice. The conference is being held at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. on October 13-15, and is entitled “Values, Vision and the via Media.” The blockbuster slate of speakers is certainly a draw as is the opportunity to find other folks who are committed to the idea that the gospel of Christ should always be honored as a liberal force for divine good within individual lives as well as our larger national and global community. I do not come out of the Anglican tradition, but seeing events like this conference makes me sometimes wish I did. The registration fee for students is very reasonable and financial scholarships are available. If you are interested, registration and contact information are available at Many thanks to Jo for alerting me to this terrific conference.

"His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay."
