Case Of the Missing Body

The Case of the Missing Body                               
Holy Saturday Night

Soldier #1     So the boss wants us to sit here and guard the dead body.  If he wants to waste his money that way it’s fine with me.

Soldier #2    Yeah, well he figures Jesus’ buddies will steal it just to say he rose from the dead.  So I guess we’ll just spend the Sabbath watching this stone to make sure it doesn’t roll away

#1 (laughing)    Yeah that would be something to see! 

#2  Sure would!  Hey, what did you get when we rolled the dice for his clothes?


The darkness is over.  The sun is up.  The Son is Out! …and the guards ran away.


 Easter is about surprises!
   v  Awesome splendor after torture and agony

v  Renewal and rejuvenation

v  Light after darkness

v  Faith turning into fruition

v  The proof after the promise

v  Spring following winter

v  Joy overcoming tears

v  Sunrise after the storm

v  Pure lilies with strong stems over disingenuous palms that float with the wind

v  Hunting for colorful eggs and not for the tomb’s missing body

v  Pastels not primaries

v  Letting go of my preconception about the way things should turn out and celebrating the reality of the way things did turn out

v  A king and not a criminal

v  Defeating the devil
                     add your own.........
