    Easter Sunday: the Festival of our Lords Resurrection!

    And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have

    beheld His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. John 1:1-18

    Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed! Alleluia, Alleluia!

    How wonderful that the daily lectionary connects Christmas with Easter! The

    Incarnation of our Lord is intimately related to His death and resurrection, and our

    Redemption. Today we behold the glory of the Word become fleshthe Word

    who was born at Bethlehem, nailed to a cross outside Jerusalem, buried in a bor-

    rowed tomb, raised to new life on the third day!

    And this Word was resurrected to continue to dwell among us. Had the Word

    remained dead and buried, God would be as distant from us as He once was. But

    now, the cold, lifeless Word that had been silenced on Good Friday is alive

    againspeaking hope and grace and newness of life!

    Jesus Christ is Risen today! Alleluia!

    It has been my pleasure to share this journey with you from Ash Wednesday to

    Easter, through Year II of the daily lectionary. It is my prayer that your Lenten

    season has been enriched and deepened by our reflections together. And now

    May the Lord bless you and keep you.

    May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the

    Lord look upon you with favor, and give you peace.

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
