Jesus breathed peace over all of us on Easter evening, the same Spirit-filled breath that brought order to the chaos of Genesis 1:1. This gift of peace fills our relationships with God, with neighbors near and far, and with ourselves. Our self-centered ugliness can’t stop it. Goodness is stronger than evil.
The tomb is empty. Love and life win.
This message is an excerpt from “The empty tomb wins” by Susie Gamelin in the April 2019 issue of Gather magazine. Today we celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord or the Vigil of Easter.
