We are here on Easter morning to celebrate the miracle of the Resurrection – the Empty Tomb.  Do you believe in miracles?  Does the resurrection miracle mean anything to us today?  Is it only a story, or does the impact of this miracle still resonate for us even today?  Life for the disciples was bleak and scary after the death of Jesus.  But through the resurrection, life suddenly began to make sense.  On that Easter morning, for Mary, hope was born.  To find hope in life.  To live that hope every day with the assurance that nothing, not even death, can take that away.  That was Mary’s hope.  And it’s the same hope that draws us closer to God today.  What is YOUR Easter hope?

Based on Isaiah 25:6-9 and John 20:1-18;30-31.
