Carl McColman from The Website of Unknowing recently posted a provocative blog on the implications of scheduling Easter.
McColman correctly names that there are elaborate charts for determining the date of Easter, which in Western Christianity falls each year on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the Spring Equinox.
In contrast to the predictable charts for determining the date of Easter, the original Resurrection was a life-altering surprise for the devastated disciples, who thought the Jesus movement had ended with the Roman Empire’s execution of Jesus.
Where do you see signs of resurrection in yourself, in those you love, and in creation?
Where is God birthing new life on the other side of death, fresh hope on the other side of despair, and unexpected peace on the other side of fear?
