Readings: Luke 24:1-12
While the bell choir was playing “Thine is the Glory” just now, suddenly it was snowing but good! As I looked around at your faces, I thought what can you do but laugh? Theologians have written that Easter, in some ways, is God’s best joke on humanity. Just when the powers of the world thought they had done all they could do, just when empire rose up to show who was in charge, just when they thought they were done with this guy named Jesus, God showed them another way. So normally on a spring day like this, snow would bum me out. But today, it makes me happy to see that snow!
