The Easter season is a sacred time of the year. It is one in which we move from reliving and remembering the suffering and death of Jesus on Good Friday to embracing the joy of the Resurrection, and the deep peace it brings. The roller-coaster ride of emotions experienced by Jesus’ disciples the week before Easter, the week we call “Holy,” are ours, too. From a Holy Thursday experience of love, community and service to others, to the agony and crucifixion on Good Friday, then the solemn “quiet”– almost emptiness — of Holy Saturday, we finally come to Easter. The sun rises on our services, the bells ring out like never before, we don our best light-colored clothing and rejoice! Alleluia! Death has been overcome by life — and we can’t contain our joy.
