Easter Discomfort

Easter should be more disquieting than Good Friday.

Good Friday is a celebration of torture and death. Even more, it is the celebration of the torture and death of the only Good Man, God's own Son. For this reason we are uncomfortable; add the fact that we bear some culpability in this act and it is an obvious cause for squirming in our seats.

Easter, on the other hand, is warm and fuzzy... or is it?


Easter is about God's future breaking into the present. Easter is about God's rule and reign breaking into our petty kingdoms. Easter is about the undoing of all of our own plans for our own ideas to become our own reality.

We don't squirm in our seats about Easter, because we don't understand it.
