Visioning ahead this Easter

We know the story as it is familiar to us. The women arrive to discover the empty tomb. They came with grief and sadness. Each one of us can relate to loss, disappointment, and sorrow. The emptiness leaves us with a hollow feeling inside. And yet out of the tomb, comes the Risen Christ. Jesus Alive! Easter is about resurrection. Out of despair can come something new with the promise of life and hope.

Just as new life was experienced by the disciples, we too, can share the hope as we experience Easter anew. Easter is about new life and a promise. New life can grow inside of us. The Easter story is our story as we are God’s Easter People. The story lives in us. How might we witness this new life in the days ahead?
