The heart of Christian faith is the hope of the resurrection. Sometimes the ongoing waves of slow death through disease or old age or sudden death through tragedy numb us to this hope. We accept death as part of the natural order of things in the universe. And we think about the hope of the resurrection as just that, a hope but not reality. Something happened on that Sunday morning 2,000 years ago that changed all of this. To borrow from CS Lewis, that Sunday morning marked the moment when the ‘deeper magic’ won out over the power of the grave. A couple years ago, something happened to Brian Doerksen on Easter Sunday morning that helped him wake up to this truth again. “I woke up with this question; ‘What was it like to hear these words on that Sunday morning – He is not here, He is risen!’ I started imagining what that would have felt like to be the first people to hear these words. And then it dawned on me that that question was the start of a song. I raced over to the piano and this song tumbled out. It was a complete thrill to write about that Sunday morning on Easter Sunday morning.  I hope that hearing this song helps you remember that it’s all true. We will experience resurrection because God in Jesus has defeated the power of death.”
