Death no longer shocks us, whether it comes quietly, after a long life, well-lived; suddenly, in a blaze of bullets; agonizingly, with a knee at the neck; or slowly, gasping for breath, alone in a hospital room. We may grieve, but it does not shock us. What shocks, alarms, terrifies, amazes, and makes us afraid is life – especially the kind of life Jesus offers us in the resurrection.
