One of my favorite Easter traditions goes like this:

One person says, “He is Risen!”

You answer, “He is Risen Indeed!”

At church we do this together: The worship leader says, “He is Risen!” The congregation responds with “He is Risen Indeed!” We go through this three times–with tremendous crescendo.

I pray that you experience the profound hope that Our Living Lord brings. Whatever you’ve experienced this last year–whatever you’re going through right now–whatever you’re concerned about facing in the year to come–Jesus is Alive. He knows. He cares. He’s making all things new. God bless you, my friends.

Happy Easter.
