For over 30 years, Christian faculty at UCSB have been meeting regularly for discussion and prayer.
For over 20 years they published an annual full-page proclamation in the Daily Nexus simply declaring "He Is Risen!"
The original proclamation had 13 signers and grew to over fifty within several years.
Christian staff members joined the chorus later by echoing "He Is Risen Indeed!"
A CROSS, AN EMPTY TOMB, AND THE RESURRECTION
Our ransom was paid in full on the cross. Death was defeated so that we might live.
"When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality
then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."
"Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?"
(1 Corinthians 15: 54-55)
