Easter Sunrise

The forecast as of last night on said to expect a chilly start...

Well, see for yourself: (as of 9 p.m.)

Our 'sunrise service' is held at 7 a.m. - you'll note that its actually 8 minutes late, but that's ok as far as I'm concerned. So I'm thinking that its going to be a chilly scooter-ride tomorrow morning when I head over around 5:30.

(What!?! You're going to take the scooter? Silly Preacher!)

Well, I think I just might. There's nothing quite like riding the scoot on open roads on a morning that's meant for rejoicing. (Even if I wimp out tomorrow and take the car, the sentiment still applies.)

John 20:1-4

The Empty Tomb
1Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!" 3So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.

See? If Peter only had a scooter, he'd have made it to see the empty tomb first.

(...more on the resurrection of the Lord later.)
