Question: The US government has over a billion of these. What are they?

Answer: Pounds of cheese stored in caves in Missouri!

And 355 million pounds of butter. Technically, the USDA owns just 300 million pounds of the cheese and is storing the remaining billion or so for a friend. Cave networks in the Kansas City area are naturally climate-controlled and so the USDA, which has a sizeable presence in the area, uses them for cheap cold storage. So there are just shelves and shelves and shelves of wheels and wheels and wheels of cheese, glorious cheese-lined caves, with no end in sight.

Do you know what zero pounds of is being stored in a cave near Jerusalem?…. JESUS, glorious JESUS!!! As the women at the tomb were told by the angel when they went looking for Jesus’ body: “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!”

But what does that mean for us living today? That’s the subject of our new sermon series which pastor Jill introduces today. The series is called “Living in the Resurrection” and the first sermon is “Signs of the Resurrection.”
