The Resurrection

The Resurrection

  • Pastor Arnie Hall
  • Manukau City Baptist Church
  • Luke 24

Don’t get stuck on a Saturday

  • After the crucifixion; before the resurrection
  • Stuck in defeat
  • No courage, no hope, no plans

Did my Saturday activity reflect my Sunday beliefs?

  • Did people see my love for God in my Saturday activity?
  • Took my kids to Armageddon Speculative Fiction conference.
  • A celebration of the human capacity for imaginative play (in the words of Ben Browder).

Earned Geek cred by asking Ben Browder a question:

  • “What’s with you and Claudia Black?  She keeps following you from series to series.”
  • His answer: “It’s just a industry thing that sometimes you work with the same people.”
  • He made jokes about his wife keeping a close eye on him.

My impressions of Ben Browder

  • He appears to be just like his Cameron Mitchell character: Confident, laconic, bright, intelligent, loyal (to his wife and friends)
  • I was impressed.
  • Of course, he could just be projecting an image.  He chose to stand for the hour of his interview.  Perhaps he was treating it as an acting assignment.
  • But I choose to believe the best of the man.

It’s easy to continue to think in a Saturday state of mind

  • But “lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
  • Matt 28:20
  • We have resurrection power at our disposal.
