The Rose Parade Float

             Here is one of my favorite Easter stories as told by my friend Rick Atchley:

            Is the resurrection’s power relevant to you today?
            Several years ago, there was a float in the New Years Day Rose Parade that stalled out and stopped the entire parade. [It] backed it up. The float had run out of gas and somebody had to go get a gas can. The ironic thing is that the sponsor of the float was the Standard Oil Company.
            Here is something that represents all of these vast resources that doesn't have the capacity in the moment to use them.
            How many Christians live that way? God did not intend [the resurrection] as something to be explained; he intended [the resurrection] to be experienced.
