One of the most important messages that Christianity has brought the world is one of hope.
In today’s world, that may sound naïve.
We are surrounded by stories of war, poverty, disease, addiction, loneliness, and failure—to name a few.
Our work to try and eradicate these social ills certainly has its ups and downs. It’s never over.
But today, on Easter Sunday, we are reminded that suffering isn’t the whole story. We believe that there is a different ending for us all.
Diverse though we may be, Christians around the world are united in our shared belief that Jesus rose from the dead. Yes, we will struggle. But after our struggle, there is always redemption. And there is always hope.
Today, I wish you and your loved ones a blessed Easter.
