And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Christianity is More than Morals, Theology, Philosophy, and Ritual.
It is Connection to the Presence and Power of the Resurrected Christ.

“Psychologists have long known that people can be scarred for years by a single event.
The term for it is trauma, but what is the opposite?
What word would describe a positive emotional state that lingers for decades in response to a single event?
There is no opposite of trauma, because no single good event has such a lasting impact.”(Tierney, John. The Power of Bad (p. 7). Penguin Publishing Group. Kindle Edition. )
But is that ultimately true?
Is there nothing we can call the opposite of trauma?
How does the Resurrection of Jesus Christ fit into that picture?
