Easter – Love Wins

Easter season is the brightest and best of brightest days on the Christian calendar.  It shows us that despite the darkness in this world, we have hope.  Life trumps death.  Love is stronger than hate.  Health defeats sickness (mental and physical).

It is vital for us not to keep this message under a bushel but to put it on a lampstand.  That means, for we the people of God, to pay attention to stories that are sometimes difficult to read.  It means going to places that are difficult to go.  It means being in contact and helping people that the part of us that yearns for safety might rear back from.

Jesus told us to fear not.  I don’t think that message is for us hunkered down in our safest places.  I think it is for those who go to the place and are among the people who need to hear the Good News the most.

Easter means love wins.

Let’s be a part of the winning team.

Until next time,

Tom
