Easter Monday Poem

April 13, 2020

In the beginning
God said Let there be light
and the light entered the darkness
and changed it forever.
The darkness is still dark,
but full of light;
and the darkness
cannot limit the light.

And now God has said Let there be life
and the life has entered death
and changed it forever.
Death is still death,
but full of life;
and death cannot limit life.

Christ has died
and entered into our death
and changed it forever.
Christ is risen,
risen into us,
and we are changed forever,
the Body of Christ.
We are still ourselves,
but full of Christ,
and the self cannot limit
the Christ in us.

Christ is risen;
we are risen indeed.
