“Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.”

—Matthew 27:65 (NIV)

A Time to Think

Be present. Be aware. Be patient. Be attentive. Even to the pain of it all. Being open to that allows us to see the bright, brilliant, dazzling, impossible-to-comprehend truth.— Rick Hamlin

A Time to Act

Today as you wait amidst the darkness of Good Friday and the Light of Easter, make time to reflect on the hope of the resurrection.

A Time to Pray

Lord Jesus, today I will focus on the miraculous fact that the darkness of yesterday will soon be overcome by the light of tomorrow.
