Tragedy and the Empty Tomb

Tragedy and the Empty Tomb March 29, 2013

Phillip Yancey has written a very moving and helpful piece on untangling profound suffering, and how it actually can point us to a deeper, more profound faith, especially when seen through the lens of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Entitled National Tragedy and the Empty Tomb, the whole thing is worthy of you reading it this Easter, but the following paragraph jumped out at me, speaking of Desmond Tutu’s reaction to sitting through South Africa’s Truth and Reconcilliation Commission Hearings,

Tutu emerged from the hearings with this conviction: “For us who are Christians, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is proof positive that love is stronger than hate, that life is stronger than death, that light is stronger than darkness, that laughter and joy, and compassion and gentleness and truth, all these are so much stronger than their ghastly counterparts.”
