I am in the middle of an engaging conversation about the resurrection with some friends who are wrestling with different views on the necessity of a literal, bodily resurrection of Jesus.
Since I happened to address this a bit on Easter, and am busy learning some Spanish while in Costa Rica (as well as kayaking, canyoning and going on the absolutely coolest river rafting trip ever on the Rio Pacuare!), I will post the link to my sermon from the church website. If you are interested, here is my contribution to the issue. If you are looking for the footnotes, a lot of them would be found here. (Or in ¨crib notes¨ form, here.)
