"Easter Day showed that God was alive, well and caring...the resurrection is like the first day of a new creation." Alistair McGrath
Isn't Easter the most imporant day of the Christian calendar? Have we done such a poor job of telling His story that the world has forgotten?
"The end is life. His life and our lives through Him, in Him. Existence has greater depths of beauty, mystery, and benediction than the wildest visionary has ever dared to dream. Christ our Lord is risen indeed." Frederick Buechner
Perhaps we are so immune to the pain all around us that we forget that the hurting the helpless and the hopeless need to see the scarred hands and feet of the risen Christ. Perhaps we need to remind the world to dream the greatest dream of all: that life is possible; that living is not optional, and that death is not the end of the story.
"From the resurrection of Christ...a new and purifying wind can blow through our present world...To live in the light of the resurrection, that is what Easter means." Dietrich Bonhoeffer
When is Easter? Easter should be every day that we proclaim the hope and life of the Resurrected Christ to a dark and dying world.
