Christ is risen.

Don’t debate it, or try to prove it or understand it.

That’s like trying to prove that the moon is lovely.

Just let it be true.

Give up, and let it be.

Don’t try to guess (which is all we could do)

what kind of body, what sort of process.

Just let the sun rise.

Let God have the way of love and life.

Let goodness overpower evil,

love drive out fear, life defeat death.

Christ is risen.

Don’t try to make it into a theory;

let it be a mystery.

Let it haunt you, let it startle you,

let it push you out of bed in the morning,

let it draw you into love.

Christ is risen.

Let Christ rise in you.
