Two Aspects of Easter

[From the archives.]

Easter, part one:

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. (Matthew 28:5-8.)

The first Christians: afraid, filled with joy, and running to spread the news! Want to join them?

Easter, part two:

In case you’re feeling pressured to show up at church in your fancy Easter clothes, here’s how we do it. Sunday Clothes 1God doesn’t care if you have on suits or shorts. He just loves being with you.

    He is Risen.
    I don’t have an iron-clad Euclidean style proof that he is.
    I simply choose to believe that he is.
    Faith to me is not certainty, it is hope.
    Messiah risen, his very literal and bodily person is the only hope I have.
