Easter: Celebrating the risen Savior
When I was in fifth grade, a classmate was killed when hit by a bus. My fellow classmates and I were understandably upset and confused. Mother comforted me and talked with me about the fact that since God is the Life of man, life itself must be and is eternal and my friend was still just as loved and embraced as always—never separated from good—and therefore I could not be separated from good, either. This was quite helpful and allowed me to gain peace.
She encouraged me to go with friends to the funeral, which was in another church. Once there, I observed a very graphic statue of Jesus hanging crucified on the cross. I had been raised in the Christian Science Sunday School, so my immediate mental response was to think of how important Jesus’ resurrection and ascension are. Jesus’ resurrection, three days after the crucifixion, and his ascension, 40 days after that, showed man’s life to be spiritual and immortal.
