No Easter This Year?

5 Apr


I overheard a conversation recently, quite by accident, and it went
something like this:
This virus pandemic has really messed up my personal plans.
How so? the other person asked.
Well, I had tickets for a European trip and now they are useless.
My daughter and new granddaughter were supposed to
visit in May, but that’s doubtful.  And I’m trapped in my house
like a prisoner. My church is locked and now we won’t even
have Palm Sunday or Easter.

No Palm Sunday?  No Easter?  Really?
A reminder for us all:  Easter does not depend on whether I sit in
a pew or not.  Easter will happen even if my church is
locked up tight.  Resurrection happens!
Resurrection happened last week, and yesterday and new life
will occur today and in all the tomorrows to come.  The calendar does
not determine Resurrection, the Spirit does, and does, and does.

So even if we can’t experience the powerful celebration of Easter
in the church building, we can, and will, celebrate as the
scattered but united Body of Christ.
Today is Palm Sunday.  Next Sunday is Easter.
It will happen!
Nothing can stop Resurrection!
