Resurrection? So What? Fact or Fiction

Peregrini met to ponder the uncertainty of The Resurrection. Yes, that's right. The uncertainty of Jesus' resurrection. Was Jesus' corpse raised to experience the same heart pumping life after the crucifixion as he experienced before being hung on the cross?

The Rev. Dr. Vernon Meyer led our pilgrims along the possible path of adventure. What are the clues to answering the questions? How do we find the truth? Where do we find some absoluteness?

Paul and the writers of the gospels offer some direction. But, it seems their answers are only more questions. What are the common threads? The empty tomb. Is that all we are left with? Seems so. The empty tomb and some interesting experiences by a small number of eye witnesses who never actually wrote about what they saw. They only told others. So what do we make of it?

The real question is: "So what?" What difference does the empty tomb make in my life? These questions and many more will continue to be discussed next Wednesday, March 15, 7:00 pm at Fair Trade Cafe, 100 W. Roosevelt Phoenix, Arizona. All are welcome. Bring your questions. Answers are optional.
