We cling to the promise of the resurrection: Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again!
This is Eastertide: a 50-day celebration of the resurrection of Jesus and all the benefits and blessings therein. If we are to Lament that the world is not as it should be throughout the 40 days of Lent, how much more should we celebrate redemption brought about by resurrection? With flags, and shouts, and raucous parties, and champagne for breakfast, as N.T. Wright suggests.
