For many of us, this past year of dealing with the Coronavirus Covid 19 has felt like wandering through a graveyard. Surrounded by fear mongering and a news media who likes to emphasize the worst case scenarios filled with hyperbole; it has felt like a long dark night of isolation, unknown and confusion. Those are the same feelings that Jesus's followers must have felt after a long, dark weekend following the crucifixion and it surrounds them as they get up early to head back to the tomb to finish the death preparation from Friday night. What they encountered when they arrived not only changed their mood and outlook - it changed everything. Instead of death, they found an empty tomb and a resurrected Savior. What better time than Easter when we celebrate Jesus's victory over sin, the grave and death for us to stop living in the graveyard? It is time for The Church, and Christians to leave the graveyard of 2020 and start living  out the life giving  power of the the Resurrection! From Luke 24:1-12.
