Easter Sunday

There is no day to compare with Easter.  It stands out from the conflicts and turmoil of our broken world, lifts our minds and enlivens our hearts with a joy and love so complete that it conquers death.  Early on the first Easter morning a mighty act of God took place ~ Christ rose from the dead, altered the past and shaped the future.  Nothing can be the same again.  That is what makes Easter the greatest occasion of the year and Good News for all time.  All our hopes and happiness stem from that event.  Easter announces that there is a way forward out of darkness, transformation is possible and change can take place in our lives. The resurrection of Jesus from the dead affirms that death is not the end of us.  We are meant for more than this present life and are not anchored to this world.  Easter is the answer to all the tears that we shed at the graves of our loved ones because it reminds us that we have a future greater than we dare believe in, provided we open our hearts to the grace that Jesus won for us.  Christ has shared the gift of his life with us and his resurrection from the dead points to the resurrection of all people.  The best way we can give thanks to God for the gift of his life within us this Easter, is by opening  our hearts to the risen Jesus and by allowing ourselves to be sent out into the world to proclaim the Good News of Christ’s love.
