Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let
us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.

Detail from "Last Judgment"

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once He died, our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where's thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia!

Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise, Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

Resurrection of Christ and Women at the Tomb (1440-41)
Fra Angelico
A fresco at the Convento di San Marco, Florence, Italy

After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning,
Mary Magdalene and the other mary came to see the tomb.
And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the
Lord descended from heaven, approached, rolled back the stone,
and sat upon it. His appearance was like lightning and his clothing
was white as snow. The guards were shaken with fear of him and
became like dead men. Then the angel said to the women in reply,
"He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said. Come and
see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples,
'He has been raised from the dead, and he is going before you to
Galilee; there you will see him.' And behold, Jesus met them on
their way and greeted them. They approached, embrace his feet
and did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid.
Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."

Matthew 28: 1-10
New American Bible

And now, the Last Word:

On Easter Day, the veil between
time and eternity thins to gossamer.

Douglas Horton (1891-1968)
Congregational pastor, president of the
Federal Council of Churches
