Luke 24:1-12

When the women find the tomb empty, they are stunned by the presence
and words of the men in dazzling clothing—and yet, they remember. Even
in utter shock, they return to their deep knowing and allow themselves
to receive the expansiveness of resurrection. Many of the disciples won’t
open themselves up to this expansiveness and reject their testimony. Peter
is curious enough to return to the tomb, and as a result, he is filled with
amazement and awe. How do we carry forth what we have learned this
Lent? Can we be curious enough to return and remember? Can we allow
ourselves to be filled with expansive hope? Can we trust in the expansive
promise of new life, and carry that promise with us wherever we go?
