The Astonishing Juxtapositions of Easter


Total darkness and absolute light.

Evil and purity.

Doubt and faith.

Despair and expectation.

Disappointment and hope.

Destruction and establishment.

Separation and union.

Death and life.

Grief and joy.

And before the latter, there must be endured (not escaped) the waiting after the former.

The tension between the 'already' and the 'not yet'. Both true.

The cross and the empty tomb.

"Easter Saturday" is the waiting on the knife edge between the two.

The waiting. Not the end.

HOLD ON.
