______________________________

Christianity isn’t only theology and morals… it’s about celebration, joy, and humanity. Easter isn’t only the Resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Flesh… yes, it IS that, but it’s more besides! It’s about Easter eggs, kulichi (them’s the thing-a-ma-bobs being baked and blessed above), your child’s smile, and a feast! It’s divine and human, sublime and earthy, utterly transcendent, yet closely intimate… all at once, all mixed up, and inextricable.

It’s almost here. If Christ be not risen from the dead, your faith is in vain… that’s the long and the short of it all. Keep it focused… it’s not much longer…
