Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
Shouts of exaltation about our risen Lord capture our attention each Easter vigil. The somber and reflective time of Lent ends as we enter the joyous and life-giving season of Easter.
Each of us spends time with family, friends and church members during this transformative Easter experience. Easter teaches us about the joy of new life: the birth of a baby, the first time a garden plant blooms, or the hug of a new friend. All seems new at this time of the year because of the promise of resurrection into new life.
Easter lilies remind us of the triumphant joy of Easter. The white blooms look like trumpet horns proclaiming Christ’s resurrection from the dead. Church altars and home mantels are covered with their resurrection promise.
Let the trumpets sound: Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
