Friends, Happy Easter!

Today we arrive at the tomb of Jesus, our beloved friend and savior, with the women of Galilee – Mary Magdalene, Joanna and Mary, the Mother of James – the first witnesses to the Resurrection. We all arrive at the tomb with our own expectations. The first disciples come after the trauma of Good Friday to mourn their leader and friend. They are carrying spices that they expect to leave outside his sealed tomb. They hope to simply pay their respects. We arrive at the end of Holy Week and at the end of our own Lenten journeys. We each carry our individual Lenten offerings and Easter expectations for what resurrection and new life will look like for us.

I moved back into my parents’ house this year, and I can tell you that my family hears a whole lot about the Second Beatitude when I come home from class weeping about the ways we as Americans, both intentionally and unintentionally, hurt the students of color we teach. I am particularly interested in my place in all of this.
