From our perspective of separation
an experience of vast emptiness
can fill us with fear and with terror..
Why? Is it that our identity
freshly discovered finds ourself
not the limited located self
we have assumed and believed
for lo so many years..!
Might it be our introduction to:
After a long winter, a long and at times heavy season of Lent, and the retelling of the events that led Jesus to the cross, we come this morning wanting an encounter with the risen Christ. But Jesus is not in Mark’s Easter gospel. Instead we only have the women who in their terror and amazement run away and tell no one. What we have is simply an empty tomb, an empty cave, an empty hole. Empty.
