Christ is risen indeed!
I have to say, this is probably going to be the most memorable Lent season ever. Many church musician colleagues are saying things like “In 40 years I have never missed Holy Week with all its preparations, practicing, and liturgies.” But as I heard said this past Easter Sunday, “It’s Easter. It doesn’t look like it, but it is.” How true. Easter is not an annual “SURPRISE!” We live in a state of “Easter life” – which cannot be taken away. Easter, IS.
So, I thought this week, time for some happiness. A little dance. Darkness is gradually diminishing, as will our stay-at-home disciplines to protect other.
For now, enjoy a bright spot with these two Easter hymns: “Alleluia, Christ is Arisen,” and “Now the Green Blade Rises.”
