  • Easter is just around the corner.
    Did you know that Easter is on April Fool’s Day this year?
    It is quite the appropriate day for Easter!
    On what we now call Good Friday, those who opposed Jesus managed to silence him for good.
    They nailed him to a cross and let him die.
    A bystander took his body and buried it.
    The deed was done.
    The Man was dead, and his disciples were hiding in silence.
    Then came Sunday, and the silence was shattered.
    The tomb in which Jesus had been buried was empty.
