“Very Dead or Very Much Alive?”
If we open our eyes, we can see all around us living proof of the hope of resurrection and renewal. We see it in the changed lives of the people touched by the love of the living Christ. People have felt the forgiving power of Easter, the hope that they don't have to live with guilt, so their lives are different. People who have been overcome by sorrow experience a new hope and the promise there is more to life than death and pain, there is the promise of resurrection life. Easter makes the difference because the victory of Christ over the tomb makes all the difference.
