Happy Easter! Christ is Risen!
Alleluia! Christ is risen, Indeed! But at the beginning of today’s Resurrection scripture, we meet Mary Magdalene; Mary, the mother of James and Salome grieving the loss of their friend and teacher, and on their way to anoint Jesus’ body. They find a empty tomb and an angel who tells them Jesus has risen! Their lives are forever changed. What do we do with that life-altering news today? What is our role in the ongoing story of Jesus’ resurrection?
This week, live out the Easter story by being a sign of new life for someone. Give an Easter basket to a homebound or elderly neighbor, offer a word or sign of hope to someone in despair, make a donation to a life-giving nonprofit organization, or invite someone to church. Jesus lives! and He lives in us!
