On the Way to Resurrection

Our Gospel reading today is the story of two resurrections. On the way to raise from the dead the daughter of Jairus, Jesus stopped to raise to life a woman who had no life…. Miracles are signs, they are reminders that Jesus is on the way to resurrection, and on the way once in a while he pauses to perform a miracle. But more significantly, he pauses on the way to resurrection to give new life, life with meaning… Today’s Gospel reading is not about miracles. It’s about the miracles that take place on the way to resurrection! [Hear the rest of the sermon here:]
