BLOG: ‘He is Risen’

Followers of Jesus Found the Tomb Empty but Their Hearts Full

The biggest break I ever had as a writer for The Tampa Tribune was covering a sunrise service in New Port Richey, FL. I was a part-time correspondent and got the assignment because no full-time reporter wanted to get up that early. Though it only appeared in a local section, it was a coup for me. The story had just two quotes, but they were the right quotes. After the service, one attendee said, “He is risen!” Another, smiling in the cool April air, responded, “He is risen, indeed.” I came to know the power of the resurrection in Vietnam. I share how it happened on my church’s website in a story called “Stealing Psalm 40.” — LINK
