Soon we will see the darkness of Good Friday give way to the dawning of new life on Easter morning. When we will shout with confidence that CHRIST HAS RISEN! The tomb could not hold him! Death and darkness is not the end of this story!
For Christ's story has become our story and has continued from Easter morning through the ages as we celebrate our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who is a God of hope, resurrection, new life and grace. So, as we celebrate and live out our faith story, let us honor God by looking for opportunities and challenges to share this good news. Speak out and step out in faith. Love others, especially those who are difficult to love. Share the hope we have in Christ with those who find it difficult in seeing hope. Leave the walls behind and be the church in or community and the world.
CHRIST HAS RISEN! CHRIST HAS RISEN, INDEED! May these calls of our faith echo long after the Easter Season is over. And may we celebrate our Risen Christ each and everyday we live on earth as we will in heaven.
