It is Easter. The highest and holiest day of the Christian year (though Christmas seems to steal the attention of everyone).
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
This is the Good News! This is why we believe. This is our hope. This is our story. This is the Gospel. Without today, Christmas wouldn’t matter. Without today, Pentecost would not have happened. Without today, well, I wouldn’t be writing about Easter.
But it happened. The tomb is empty! He is risen!
