Reflections on Easter
and the connection to God: “And
now brothers, I will ask you a terrible question, and God knows I ask it
also of myself. Is the truth beyond all truths, beyond the stars, just
this: that to live without him is the real death, that to die with him the
only life?” Frederick Buechner author of The Magnificent Defeat
