Holy Saturday

Thus the heavens and the earth and all their array were completed. Since on the seventh day God was finished with all the work he had been doing, he rested on the seventh day from all the work he had undertaken. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work he had done in creation.

Such is the story of the heavens and the earth at their creation.

Genesis 2: 1-4


They took Jesus' body, and in accordance with Jewish burial custom bound it up in wrappings of cloth with perfumed oils. In the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had ever been buried. Because of the Jewish Preparation Day they buried Jesus there, for the tomb was close at hand.

John 19: 40-42


So begins the story of the heavens and earth at their recreation. In a garden it began. In a garden it will begin anew. Why not rise early tomorrow, while it is still dark, and listen as the first bird breaks the silence?

Respectfully Yours,
