Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! The universe has cracked open! The tomb is empty! Life himself has resurrected and the reign of death is ended! Easter is a time for victorious shouts and joyful cries and the great relief that comes at the end of a dark night. Salvation is won. Christ is alive. God has done what no one else could.

Bring your kazoo, your vuvuzela, your pots and pans to make a joyful noise when you hear, "Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Allelujah!"
