THIS MONTH, the Christian world celebrates Easter, the day traditionally designated to commemorate the triumphant resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth from the grave. This issue of the Journal invites Christians and other thoughtful seekers of Truth to contemplate the tender relationship between spiritual healing and the story of the resurrection.
In the Starting Point piece, "Mary's window," a woman assigned to a historic renovation project tells how, thanks to the message in a stained glass window, her sadness over several events was substantially lifted.
Then, Bea Roegge tells the story of Jesus' resurrection—simply and poignantly—as we offer some of the art world's masterpieces to illustrate those three eventful days. Nathan Talbot writes on "Resurrection and healing now," with the assurance that the laws of God are as present and life-giving today as they were in Jesus' time. Enrique Smeke comments on the need for quiet listening in both the creative and the healing arts. And painter and sculptor Artis Lane shares some of the spiritual insights that have helped her in her pursuit of excellence.
May the ideas here rekindle the joy of the early Christians' refrain, He is risen indeed!
