I heard a story about a family that tragically lost three of their four children within just two weeks to a deadly, virulent disease. One child was left--a four year old boy. The family had buried the third child just two weeks before Easter.

On Easter morning the parents and the remaining child went to church. The mother taught her Sunday School class about the resurrection of Jesus and the father read the Easter story as he led the opening Sunday School devotion. People who knew about their great loss wondered how they could do it. One family of the church were in the car on their way home after church when their 16-year-old asked his father, "Dad, that couple must believe everything about the Easter Story, don’t they?"

"Of course they believe it," said the father, "all Christians do!"

The young man then said, "But not like they do!"

(From a sermon by Michael McCartney, Experience the Spirit in the Resurrection, 5/11/2011)
