Talk

Introduction

Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This holiday is the most sacred of the year. We have been inspired, moved, and uplifted by the beautiful choir program. Thank you Sister Clark, Sister Donnelly, Sister Andrus, and the choir members for your service in helping us praise the Lord this afternoon.

On the morning of the resurrection, a group of women including a woman named Salome (Mark 16:1-2), a woman named Joanna (Luke 24:10), Mary the mother of James, and Mary of Magdala got up early visit the tomb. Their intention was to wash Jesus's dead body with spices. On the walk to the tomb, they wondered how they were going to roll the stone back so they could get in. Their faith propelled them forward, even though they had no ready solution to that problem. When they arrived, to their amazement and concern, the stone had already been rolled away. They decided to investigate to see what was going on.

Conclusion
