Christ has risen! Hallelujah!
Jesus the man died on the cross. He was buried in a tomb.But his body disappeared. Jesus was there instead. "Doubting Thomas" had to first see the stigmata on his hands and feet to believe. Mary believed. Many disciples saw him again before he 'ascended' into heaven. The 'cosmic christ' is the Godliness of creation with the permeation of matter with sacred. Jesus conquered death. He showed that this world is but a temporary illusion. Reality is spiritual not material. Matter is merely slow energy and all is light. Today Jesus is not just the cosmic christ but also the personal god of olden days risen and here. Praying and meditating work. Life is better when we do. Congregating to give praise and thanksgiving we are also healthier and better. I'm up early enough so if I get Gilbert moving we'll get to church in time to have a seat. Christians are everywhere and usually on Easter they stop lurking but actually show themselves. When today's service is over we laugh. It's a time of joy. Christ has Risen. Jesus is Lord. Hallelujah!
