He Is Risen!

I’m about to start making a salad, and then head up north for Easter lunch with the family.

For the last few minutes, I have been watching on search.twitter.com all of the times people are saying “He Is Risen” and it’s really cool, kind of like seeing a multitude of believers, the body of Christ made up of millions I don’t know all celebrating together. Granted, this is a voice of the technology driven West, (so many poorer Christian’ voices are not able to participate in this manner) but it is really astounding and joyful to see all of the people celebrating together.

And even some recognizable names out there too. for example – someone just replied to @MilieyCyrus “He is Risen indeed” So I checked out what she “tweeted” : HE HAS RISEN!!! praise the LORD! / 1 peter 1:3.

(which is: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead)
Amen.

    I got out of the car at church and two people in the rain yelled at me across the parkinglot, “He is Risen” and I yelled back, “He is Risen Indeed”…….Of course I also got after the Sunday morning service one older person said to me to have a Happy Thanksgiving….and then smiled realizing what they had said….it did look like Thanksgiving weather outside so we smiled together.Dad
