Easter Reflection

Here's a short reflection I wrote for the Cornerstone Facebook page about the Easter weekend:

Easter weekend is an incredibly meaningful time for each of us as Christ followers and as a university community here at Cornerstone.  It allows us a chance to take a break from the hectic pace of the last weeks of a school as we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord, and it helps us to once again affirm that Easter has remarkable implications for all of our lives.  We celebrate the love of a Savior who was willing to sacrifice in a remarkable way so we can experience forgiveness and freedom as broken people, and we are inspired by the reality that the resurrection of our King invites us to be partners with him in helping other’s lives and all things that are broken in our world to become new, to become whole, to become what God intended them to be in relationship with Him.  That’s the amazing and overwhelming news we proclaim this weekend here at CU.  May the good news of what Jesus has done fill your hearts with peace and joy at Easter…
