Resurrection at Nain

June 5, 2016, The Rev. Todd Foster preaching

It is fascinating to me that when God chose to put on flesh and come into the world in power, God chose not to do so with huge assertions of political influence or military might. Jesus did indeed demonstrate mastery of rulers, kingdoms and death, but Jesus didn’t abolish these things. Still today we lose children, parents, siblings, friends, and lovers.
