I never got around to posting John Updike’s Seven Stanzas at Easter this year. It’s an eloquent and easy way to make clear that I believe in the real, physical resurrection of Christ – not a spiritual or metaphorical resurrection, not Jesus living on in the memories of his followers. No, real skin and bones and organs and corpuscles and all that stuff – first dead, then completely alive. I’m old fashioned that way.
As I said, I didn’t fit “Seven Stanzas” in before Easter. But I am going to pass on this less artistically meritorious but funnier video from the folks at The Lutheran Satire. The fact that such a group exists shakes up my image of Lutherans a bit. Are they ELCA? Maybe Missouri Synod? Surely not WELS! (Dear Lutherans, I’m just kidding, now that I know you allow humor.)
I have only one negative comment to make about this video: check your spelling, brother.
