He Is Risen

The words in the post title mark the beginning of many Christian services today, the most holy day in the Christian calendar. The Resurrection is the central event in Christian theology. It is uplifting. For those of the faith, it’s the central event in human history. From the Gospel of Mark:

16:1 And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Solome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

16:2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week,
they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

16:3 And they said among themselves,
Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?

16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

16:5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side,
clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

16:6 And he saith unto them,
Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified:
he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

16:7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee:
there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

Easter Dinner

On the menu today, we have:

  • Ham with a habenero-honey glaze
  • Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce
  • Potato salad
  • Deviled eggs
  • A Riesling from a local winery

And the sun is out today, which is darn near miraculous.

Happy Easter!
