The aftermath is always something interesting. The aftermath of Christmas involves cleaning, taking down lights, putting away trees, eating leftovers, prepping for the new year and writing “thank-you”s. What is the aftermath of Easter? Aside from a few eggs that may have been undiscovered, there isn’t much for most folks. Decorations are fewer, vacations are less, no new year is around the corner, school is still in session. So, we typically don’t think of Easter aftermath. But we should.
We have been re-invigorated with the message of life. We have remembered the cost and celebrate the life. Hope is recast. Then we look around and many people are not aware. The aftermath of Easter involves coming to the world with the hope and spreading it around.
I hope you have much to do now and much to share. The risen Christ would want it that way.
