The Revd Susan Durber, minister at Taunton United Reformed Church, is overcome with joy visiting the empty tomb
The more I become familiar with death, the more I find I believe in the resurrection. I’ve reached that stage of life, probably rather early, where so many people I have loved have died. Death is no stranger any more, no great unknown, but one of the boring facts of life which keeps reminding me of its existence.
I was recently in Jerusalem with, among others, a Franciscan priest. While we were there he went, very early one morning, to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where he celebrated Mass in the small shrine at the heart of the church. You have to crouch down to get in.
