On this feast of Resurrection, when new life is bursting in creation and we celebrate Christ risen from the grave, there are so many messages in the Scriptures, in sermons and in our communications with loved ones that give us hope and challenge. I came out of sleep this morning singing a song by my friend, Jan Phillips. The refrain says, “What you have seen me do, you too can do and more. So said the Holy One, who lives forevermore.” I’ve been singing it most of the day and so I pass it on as something Jesus passed to us. He has done his mission; the continuation is up to us.

Easter blessings to all!
