Faith-Filled Tension

May 12, 2024 | Charlene Epp, Sermons

Paul binds the physical body with resurrection, a holistic change from life as we have structured and understood it to that which is eternal as Jesus life, death and resurrection gifted us. Our faith is intricately tied to a belief in the unbelievable while living and loving as Jesus did, attending to the needs of bodies in the here and now. Bodies matter now and in a future we can not know or understand – for now.
