In this episode, Alex Patchin McNeill, and Rev. Dr. Derrick McQueen, pastor at St. James Presbyterian Church in Harlem, attend to the Easter story of the women at Jesus' tomb. Together they wonder whether the women at the tomb were afraid or was it amazement and in awe of what had happened. What awakens in us when we understand resistance as the place where we move from the paralysis of fear and amazement and go do justice? How does our rising up, allow Christ to rise also? Join us to find your Easter.Text: Mark 16:1-8 For further exploration:Andra Day's Rise Up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNKu1uNBVkURev.
