The Dawn of the Resurrection of our Lord "Very early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, the women went to the tomb." (Luke 24:1, adapt.)
Awash in the dark, the women went to the tomb of Jesus expecting the usual---a dead body to be anointed. What they found astonished them and has reverberated down through the centuries to us as we gather at dawn this morning. Every dawn is God's reminder that Jesus came to defeat the darkness of sin and death and to bring the light of life to all who are trapped in darkness, sin, and death. At this early hour, we bask in the dawn of God's new Day breaking into the world, the Day when there will be no more death or tears or crying or pain, the Day of which the empty tomb is the foretaste. So let us celebrate and anticipate with great joy and exuberance. Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again. Alleluia!
Rejoicing and Sharing Jesus' love with the community.
