REMEMBER! AND THEN JESUS WALKS AND TALKS US BACK INTO LIFE

Remember: to put back together again, to repair and make whole. Remember Jesus’ words! This is what the women hear in the tomb and then we walk with Jesus telling his story, showing us how to remember and to insert our own story-lines, life-lines into the Good News to the Poor. There is a saying among story-tellers: There is only One Story – how do you tell it? All our stories are made of passion, grace, violence, suffering, hope, touch, loss, and how to live resurrection now. In the telling, in the listening to others’ stories face-to-face is our meaning. It is time to re-member and come back together again as one.
