In Mary’s tears, in Peter’s feet, in the burning hearts of the travelers on the road to Emmaus and in every part of the Easter story, we find our own diverse lives and different stories. We find a risen Savior who confounds our assumptions and overturns our expectations.
We receive a promise: Resurrection life that breaks the power of death, that frees us to live the stories of our lives without fretting about how every detail adds up. Our stories will meet in the end: an ending that, in Christ, is only the beginning of the story of eternal life.
