BEYOND GRIEF—continuity

Having become a Christian later in life, I quickly found the focus on Jesus and his ressurrection to be one of the most thoughtprovoking aspects of my new faith. The Biblical letters of the Apostle Paul were particularly insightful (see I Cor. 15). It seemed to me that as Paul preached Jesus' story everywhere he went, he kept getting back to the resurrection as the bedrock of Christianity.

Why, I wondered, was this so important? Why would Jesus' resurrection be such a major issue? Yet thinking deeply about it and about the immortality it teaches—simply because they are often mentioned in the Bible—helped prepare me for the time when my mother unexpectedly passed on.
