Vol. 91 No. 41 April 9, 2014

Resurrection by Hannah Berry, Grade 7, Sister O’Brien School, Saskatoon

“The glorious gold-bright sun was rising on the crests of the great hills, and it was changing colour — green, purple, red, blood-red, white, intense-white, and gold-white, like the glory of the God of the elements to the children of men. It was dancing up and down in exultation at the joyous resurrection of the beloved Saviour of victory.

“To be thus privileged, a person must ascend to the top of the highest hill before sunrise, and believe that the God who makes the small blade of grass to grow is the same God who makes the large, massive sun to move.”
— Alexander Carmichael
