Experiencing grace within the body of Christ is the point of Easter. This is a day to seek out our brothers and sisters as Jesus did on that Resurrection Day.
He did not remain shrouded and dead in the tomb, but rose, breathing the air of earth once again, to seek us out, call our names, walk alongside and eat with us.
Most importantly, he opened wide the hearts that had been closed in fear, confusion, and ignorance.
He makes our hearts burn within us as we contemplate the gift we were given when we deserved only punishment.
The Amen echoes our certainty.
It is so.
And so shall it ever be.
