Hear the Easter drums and rejoice in living the Resurrection

My Easter celebrations have been terrific and I am strengthened and inspired to continue in the steps of Jesus.

I am encouraged by what Easter has accomplished, challenged to keep going when the going gets tough and rejoice in living out the Resurrection faith.

The following quote from Martin Luther King Jr is at the front of my ‘Easter’ file. It gives me hope in these times of tragedy and trauma as it reminds me of “the triumphant beat of the Easter drums”:

“There is something at the very center of our faith which reminds us that Good Friday may reign for a day, but ultimately it must give way to the triumphant beat of the Easter drums. Evil may so shape events that Caesar will occupy a palace and Christ a cross, but one day that same Christ will rise up and split history into A.D. and B.C., so even the life of Caesar must be dated by his name.”
