He is not here. He has been raised. 27 March 2005

Over a period of three days he turned everything upside down. As if he hadn’t started it in the previous three years.

No wonder it took his friends some time to get used to it.

Not just “My Lord and my God” from an awe-struck Thomas that afternoon.

Not just a breakfast by the sea, and “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you” from Peter.

Not just a matter of hours or days to sort it all out.

No – it took them years. Years to see. Years to think. Years to write and wonder. Years to grasp even someting of the fulness.

Not the instant magic that solves all questions. But more the exam question, “From first principles expain and derive the application.”

By the grace of God we too are allowed the time to work it out. For ourselves. For our communities. For our generation.

In an age of instant answers, Lord give us the courage to take the time. Time to ask, question and pray. Time to weigh the simplistic answers, and to discern your truth. Unitl we too can say,

“He is risen indeed. Alleluia!”
