All of us have had "what now?" moments; those  moments in our lives where we have planned or prepared for an event or activity for such a long time or with such intensity that once it is over, we have a sense of confusion. Graduations, new jobs, marriages, the birth of a child - all moments of celebration that once passed leave us feeling somewhat lost. That had to be what many of those early Christians felt after the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ; "what now?" "where do we go from here?". You get some of that feeling by reading the Apostle Paul's incredible teaching on the resurrection from 1st Corinthians 15 and how he ends the Chapter. 
We are also sensing that same feeling in our culture as we deal with what seems to be the slow progression back to "normal" as we move into a new season of dealing with this Coronavirus Covid-19. After 2 months of being sequestered in our homes, separated from work, school, church, friends and family - what now? How do we transition back into a "new normal"? This morning we introduce some answers for where Paul felt the church and followers of Christ should move in light of the power of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the truth about our own resurrection from the dead and those same suggestions might also help us in where we go after this crazy Spring of 2020. This is part 1 of a 2 part sermon from 1st Corinthians 15:58.
