Easter is an amazing symbol which signifies all that we can hope for in that time which is to come! It has a surplus of meaning and is overflowing with insights, interpretations, and implications.
A pastor friend of mine asked me a fun question today:
If you had to preach an Easter message in just 2 sentences, how would you do it?
Here are my sentences – and I would love to hear yours.
- Christ is the prolepsis * of humanity so that we know how this story ends: resurrection and new life for everyone !!!
- The glorified Christ can be seen in the gardener (hourly worker), the traveler (immigrant and refuge) and the stranger-become-friend (neighbor-other).
If you had to proclaim the truth of Easter in 2 sentences, how would you do it?
