His response: "Oh, it's Easter? I'd forgotten."
I'm well aware that not everyone celebrates the same HOLYdays. I get it. But his response was not necessarily about religious inclusion--his response reflects the way most of the world thinks about the Resurrection: oh, it's Easter? It's easy to forget that the living Christ is among us--global pandemics, racial unrest, economic instability. It's Easter? I'd forgotten. I'd forgotten about resurrection hope. I'd forgotten about new life. I'd forgotten about eternal victory.
We live as if the Resurrection had never happened. We live as if Jesus is still on the cross or we are standing, crying, with Mary outside of the tomb.
It's Easter? The world has forgotten, and we've allowed that to happen.
Your challenge: live Easter today, and every day. Don't forget Easter. Ever. The world needs a resurrection.
