Romans 5:3-11

“Now for some hope. It’s Easter Sunday. The day that is usually spent with family and friends. This year is more chill. That’s all. Just hanging out by staying in.

It’s going to be one of those kinds of moments. BUT the we made it through those times. We will make it through this. We are stronger together. Plus we will have a big Easter together next year! This year let’s all just chill in place.”

Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal. It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.
Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune

The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.

So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel’s wings
If one should earthward fare.
Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Morning”
 
 
 
 
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.
