Preparing for Easter – Christ Is with Us
Following the traumatic events of the crucifixion and terrifying resurrection, the disciples in their confusion and grief had to be wonder, What’s next? The lectionary readings for the Easter season provide the road map ahead as the disciples discover a new postresurrection life and reality: Christ is with us. Behind closed doors, in our doubt, on our journey, in water, bread, and wine, the Good Shepherd calls us to follow, going before us to prepare the way, bringing peace, breathing the Spirit on us, so that we may tell this story to people of every land and nation. Jesus’ promise to be with us always is the game changer.
