He has risen

Of all the Sundays in the year - Easter Sunday is my favorate - and nowadays you do not have to read the story you can listen. Notice how gender plays out in the story — often the women diciples of Jesus seemed to clue in quicker to what was going on than the men. This story is an example, the women’s testimony or the resurrection was initially disregarded as 'nonsense,' but later Jesus tells the men who did not take the testimony seriously that they were 'foolish' and 'slow of heart.' The guys got it in the end though - even I got it in the end - hence my delight in this day. Enjoy!
