He Has Risen Indeed

Stained Glass window with the resurected Christ greeting Mary Magdelay and Mary mother of James outside the tomb.In churches across the world this Easter the cry will go up, "He has risen!" and the answer will echo back, "He has risen indeed!" In a world facing death from disease, hunger, neglect, war and natural disaster what more relevant message could there possibly be than this, "He has risen!" In a world more alienated from its spiritual roots than ever what more appropriate cry could go up than this, that "God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ." May you know his grace and may this Easter be a blessed time as you "Look and live" because "He has risen indeed!"

If you left click on the picture for a larger view you can easily see the angel sitting at the entrance to the tomb in the background. I first heard this at my first Easter Sunrise Service and it has stuck with me ever since.
