Easter, 2015

He isn’t here . . .
So, why keep looking?
These are just places, things,
signs of what was, where God was.
Salvation is not a relic.
Resurrection is for the living:
busy rehab, not empty tomb;
new house beams, not cross splinters.
Not to see, but to be,
so let’s get going.
He’s gone ahead . . .

Don’t cling to me . . .
Let go of the past:
happy recollections
build us up; cold traditions,
calcified, heavy, enslave us.
Resurrection is for things made new:
discovering, not just knowing;
questioning, not parroting.
Now we are apostles,
here to be sent out.
So go and tell . . .
