The Lord has risen! The Lord has risen indeed!
The women came to the tomb very early. They saw that the stone had been rolled back. Jesus was not there. Jesus had been raised.
Life in the midst of a garden. The beautiful colors, pink, yellow, proclaim resurrection, light, and love. All that had been lost in a garden, eons before, in the garden of Eden where humanity turned away from God. All that was lost in that garden has been re-gathered in the resurrection garden, the garden tomb.
This magnificent cross, created in Central America, with vibrant colors, yellow and pink and blue and red, proclaims the power and beauty of God’s redeeming love.
As we celebrate Easter this day, may we know God’s fullness of joy, God’s fullness of grace, God’s presence with us, this day and always, even to eternity.
