Covid 19 may keep us apart physically but nothing can keep us apart spiritually in the spirit of Christ!

For centuries in Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant countries, the week following Easter Sunday, was observed by the faithful as "days of joy and laughter" with parties and picnics to celebrate Jesus' resurrection.  The custom was rooted in the musings of early church theologians (like Augustine, Gregory of Nyssa, and John Chrysostom) that God played a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead. "Risus paschalis - the Easter laugh," the early theologians called it.  

Today’s service is based upon the sure belief that God has a sense of humor.  God has the last laugh and the last word.  That word is Resurrection in Jesus Christ!  He is Risen!  The joke is on human reason and rigidity.  As G.K. Chesterton once said, “Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.”
