Easter is a Beginning

When I was a child in the Methodist Church, it seemed that Easter was an ending, in that the Christian story seemed to be completed with the death and resurrection of Jesus.  After that, I got the the impression that  the main thing left was to wait for Jesus to return, and the Sunday after Easter always felt a little anticlimactic. Now it seems to me that there is another way of looking at things where Easter is the beginning.

Rev. Sturtevant retired a few years ago after a 31-year ministry at All Peoples UU Congregation here in Louisville, but has agreed to be available to help with pastoral care while First Unitarian is seeking an interim minister.  He is married to Roxanne, a retired teacher, and they have two sons, one of whom is the current Board Chair at All Peoples.  Since retirement, Elwood has served on the boards of several local organizations including the Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, has taken classes at the Earth and Spirit Center, and has worked with Roxanne on a shareholder responsibility project involving our local energy utility.
