Mark 16:6-7

And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.”

The day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday is an odd break in the resurrection story, so how do we understand God’s apparent inaction here?

I have a love-hate relationship with space movies. Stars and planets and comets are fantastic, and yet so much can potentially go horribly wrong when we humans throw our fragile little bodies out into space. All it takes is one tiny part of a spaceship or spacesuit to malfunction, and everyone is either fried or frozen.

John 12:13

So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”

A strange little holiday is coming up, and if you haven’t celebrated it before, should you and how would you?

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth. Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Savior.
