Perspective: Easter Saturday

Can you imagine being a disciple that Saturday? The visual and the visceral impact of yesterday continue to be overwhelming. You recall stories that alluded to resurrection but your hope is dwindling as the day goes on. Confidence in what He said and who He was is now replaced by confusion as faith confronts facts.

What is it like for you to be a disciple this Saturday? We live with the paradox that the pain of Friday and the groaning evident in all creation is in tension with the hope of what is to come.

It is all in the perspective.
