Easter Message from our Conference President

While it was still dark.  John’s telling of the resurrection doesn’t begin at first signs of daylight, but rather while it was still dark.  Mary sets off by herself to the tomb.  Not with spices and oils for anointing, not with a purpose or a task, but only with her grief weighing her down.  It is the loss of one she loved that sent Mary to the tomb so early that morning. 

But Mary isn’t met with the object of her grief.  Instead she finds an empty tomb – and so she goes for others.  Peter and the beloved disciple come running to investigate. Finding the empty tomb they venture in to see the linen cloth and head coverings lying there.  Believing and not understanding they return home.

But Mary remains.  Weeping.  With tears streaming down her face, it is here that she encounters Jesus.  Here that he calls her name.  Here in the very middle of the worst moments of her life that she discovers God’s response to pain and sorrow – life and hope.  Joy came not when things were good and easy, but in the dark, in the pain.  And that joy had to be shared. Her words, “I have seen the Lord!” still fill us with amazement and hope thousands of years later.

This Easter may we all hold onto that promise.  Life in the midst of pain and sorrow.  Joy while it is still dark – hope before we can even notice it.

Some days we will be like Peter – running, venturing into the empty tomb and remaining puzzled.

Some days we will be like the beloved disciple, believing and not yet understanding.  

And some days we will be like Mary, hear our own name called and know the Risen Christ.

This Easter season, may new life find you.
May the weight you carry be rolled away like that stone.
May you dare to enter the empty tomb, with faith and questions.
May the promise fulfilled allow you to hear your own name spoken in love, to hear anew, to go and tell.

Let us all dare to choose joy, to live in the life and hope of the Risen Christ. Amen

Rev. Krystal Sheremeta,
President, Saskatchewan Conference,
The United Church of Canada
