“Resurrection Resolutions” by The Rev. Stephanie Kendell

God gave Christ, and Christ gave self, and we are called to give as well.  As followers of Christ, we are to respond to the call to action born out of listening to our neighbors.  What do you, Church, have to give?  What or who have you heard in our community that is in need? What would it take for you to give a little more than you are comfortable with or that you had planned for? The reason that these believers in our scripture today are giving all that they had is because they thought that Jesus was coming back any moment.  But if we, here and now, start to see Christ in every neighbor that we have, we realize that Jesus has already arrived.
