If Easter is only about what happened to Jesus;
It is then all pretty easy and safe;
Kept all in the past;
Using the past tense of verbs
That don’t connect then with today.
But, if instead
Easter is about what happened to them;
And the choices they made;
Those who cowered in fear as they watched him die:
And who fled for their life the first chance that they had;
Then it is also about me
And the choices I make.
If that is the case
Easter is anything but easy.
Instead challenging us with hope which runs strong
In the direction of life.
