“Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary, the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles. But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.” Luke 23:56b – 24:11 (NRSV)
Arbiters of the Word
cannot hear the tales
of the spice girls
who went into the cave of death
and found Life out dancing on the hillsides.
Who is singing songs of resurrection to me this day?
