Dear Friends -
Easter is such a special time for the Christian community. I have
many fond memories over the years. Let me share one memory with you.
I was visiting with a doctor friend when he asked me what I thought
was my favorite Easter symbol? Before I could say a word, he said that we wanted to show me his favorite symbol and then I
might answer. He cupped his hand and said look. I looked. There was nothing in his cupped hands.
Without my saying a word, he kept on talking. He said that the best
and his most favorite Easter symbol was the Empty Tomb.
He didn’t stop talking. He went on to say that as a pastor
I was going to have to be very careful not to put Jesus back into the tomb. I have tried to live up to my doctor friend’s
hope for me as just a couple months later I was ordained in Georgia.
Friends, don’t look for Jesus in the Tomb. He is not there!
He is risen!
I thank God for you!
