Why do you look for the living among the dead?

Morning: Psalm 136; Exodus 13:1-2, 11-16; I Corinthians 15:51-58
In Luke’s Gospel, a group of women finds Jesus’ tomb empty.  Two men in dazzling clothes frighten the women and ask them: ‘why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.’  What are we to do with this story?  Well, you either accept Jesus’ resurrection or you don’t.  And even if you don’t, the story still addresses our human tendency to pursue fulfilment in lifeless substitutes for God – wealth, or even ‘sacred’ objects.  But lifeless things do not bring life to anyone; nor do they bring anyone to life.
