Resurrection Sunday


Note: If I apportion the message in many ways, many various media, it remains the same truth, the same good news. If I share it again, and again, and yet once again, as a runner carrying a message. So long as the message continues to be told, it will continue to transform those appointed to hear. Lives saved will continue to grow, hope will be restored.  Hope against all hope. The promise of glory.

Living hope when there is none to be seen, yet a sure hope alive to be experienced.



(Evil’s Insurrection)

Let there be Light, He said

And the Darkness fled

But who is this stealing in

Sneaking around , back again


Light has overcome

Dark will not run

Light speaks again

Dark is chagrined


Be it only right

Not able to overcome,

For then try to smite

And plunder His sum


Darkness judges life

Encircles the Light

Proclaims His demise

Will be the prize


The timber of the tree

Bears a shadow of life

And can it be three

The nails of stricken strife


The skies turned

A caliginous gloom

Darkening to spurn

Even vestige a moon


Darkness dances his jig

With a laugh of evil glee

At last he was winning big

Light hung limp upon the tree


Death, by his evil decree

Carried Light to the grave

Darkness at last mighty

Nothing would Light save


(Light of Life Overcomes Evil and Death)


Light entombed first day

Darkness still of caution

Too soon to claim decay

Stone is sealed from illusion


Light entombed day two

Death, his grip held fast

Darkness detects naught askew

Nothing he can’t outlast


Early the tomb day three

Darkness hearkens a report

Death’s message incites fury

Light escaped, extinction cut short


Sealed stone is carried away

Open door streaming sunlight

Death has lost its very first prey

Darkness more than his dolorous fight


Light is vitalized, He’s alive

 Death and Darkness defeated

Heaven’s gate is opened wide

Evil bested is gravely depleted.



Christ Is Risen!

The LORD is Risen Indeed!


And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:3

“The Light shines in the darkness and darkness has not overcome it.”  John 1:5




Where were you

When He hung on the cross

Where were you

When He suffered great loss

Where were you

When He was carried to the grave

Where were you

When He arose on the third day?


Where are you now?
