Resurrection Day!

“O death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?

Christ is risen and you are abolished.

Christ is risen and the demons are cast down.

Christ is risen and the angels rejoice.

Christ is risen and life is freed.

Christ is risen and the tomb is emptied of the dead:

for Christ, being risen from the dead, has become the Leader and Reviver of those who had fallen asleep.

To Him be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.”

(excerpt from The Easter Homily of St. John Chrysostom)

Shawn, this has been such a rich guide through the powerful time of Lent and Jesus’ ultimate death and, most importantly, resurrection. Thank you so much for all the prayer, study and effort that has gone into it. It has been well worth it.

thanks so much Leslie for your encouragement along the way! It has been a wonderful process for me to think through and process what God thinks about us. It’s been a pleasure to share.
