all expressed, much better than I could, such heartfelt personal words about
unique and unforgettable Nana. This led me to search for her exit post on this
forum. It is dated 21st April 2014 – Easter.
farewell message addressed us with an expression of love, but also with this
reminder: “Christ has risen you foolish
sounds here almost like an exasperated St Paul in some of his apostolic
letters, not to speak of Jesus who could be quite outspoken at times!
Nana has made a final, challenging and brave exodus and her soul or spirit
rests with the Lord. For now…..
But her last forum message drove me to 1 Corinthians 15: St Paul’s magnificent
and sustained discussion of the resurrection of Jesus, and also the future resurrection
of those who believe in Christ. New life, new creation ultimately in the new
Heavens and Earth where God will be all in all - not only bodiless spirit-life.
This was and hopefully still is, the
power and the centre of the gospel message of the first Christians.
to me Nana truly believed that, to quote St Paul:
perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with
immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been
swallowed up in victory.’
death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ [St Paul here refers to writings of Isaiah
and Hosea -Mag]
sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God!
He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move
you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know
that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.”
Thank you dear Nana for your last forum message.
You will not be forgotten.
