EASTER BIDS US come and see for ourselves the death-defying-by-liferaising power of God.
Easter’s call to come and see remains such a summons to the gracious possibility that life still speaks the final word and to make that word the basis for our life, our hope, our trust. Once we experience that word as personal truth, once we have come and seen the grace of God revealed in the raising of Jesus—then, like those women at the tomb, we have something to go and talk about, to go and live about, to go and serve about.
