 Happy Easter!  Today we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and in doing so, we celebrate our own salvation for Jesus died and rose to bring us to eternal life!  It is a day of joy, of hope, of celebration, and of thanksgiving.  Jesus is Risen!  Sin and death are defeated!  We are saved!  Alleluia!

   I see resurrection all around us.  I see it in nature as spring comes forth as buds are on trees, flowers are peaking out of the ground, the grass is turning green.  I see it as my beloved Chicago Cubs are playing baseball once again and fans, though small, are in attendance (like I will be on Tuesday!).  I see it as people get vaccinated and get a chance to reunite with people they haven’t seen in over a year.  Not only will I get to experience this on Tuesday, but I experienced it this past week in my first visit to Glenhaven since February of 2020.

   It was very emotional to see our residents for the first time face to face.  I had done video visits with them but it just isn’t the same.  Even though we were masked and kept distance, to sit and talk with them and not worry about a camera or if they could hear me clearly or not, was really awesome.  I was very moved to talk with them, share scripture with them, pray with them.  And to top it off, as I left my last visit, as I was walking out the door, the resident said, “I really missed you Pastor.”  I missed them too.  And so I cried in my car, tears of joy that I could visit with them again.

  There is resurrection all around us.  It can be seen in every aspect of our lives.  Though we will still need to do be safe, to keep masked and distant when appropriate, we are coming out of this year of pandemic.  We are getting a chance to reconnect with each other.  We are watching the renewal of the earth.  There is resurrection because there is Jesus, the Son of God who defeated sin, death, and the devil through his resurrection and will bring us with him to eternal life.  Every day you are renewed in Christ.  Every day you rise because Jesus has risen.  May you have a blessed and happy Easter and may you see and feel the power of the resurrection in every aspect of your life.  Christ is Risen!  He is risen indeed!  Alleluia!
