“He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.’ This is my message for you.” -Matthew 28: 7

Matthew writes that the angel rolled away the stone from the tomb and then sat on it. From a lounging angel, exuding quiet confidence, we have a message: Go home. Jesus is there.

This year we are shut-in with our families on the church’s great day of assembly. Jesus is with each of you. Tomorrow will be unlike any other Easter morning, but all the essential elements will be there. The Easter Gospel will be heard. The message of life and love everlasting will be directed to you and to your families.

All will be well. The angels told the women that their Lord Jesus had gone ahead of them and was calling them out of their confusion and sadness into the light of his life.


Peace Musicians

According to Matthew’s Gospel, the women at the tomb had an angel to talk them out of their sad search for normalcy. Tomorrow some of our Peace musicians will appear, live on Zoom or in recordings made just for us, to lift our spirits.

I really think of them as our private angels, bringing us messages of hope, and drawing our community together with music.

Tomorrow you will hear Jonathan Moretz and Bruce Goody, Andie Vogt and Preston Barbare, Leah Jonczyk and even Juliana McDonald!
