The Tomb is Empty

What does an empty tomb mean?

What does an empty tomb mean for those of us who are Detectives of Divinity –  in church basements and Sunday School rooms and Bible studies and sanctuaries?  For those of us who have committed to pointing toward the work of God the Creator and Jesus and the Holy Spirit among us in our relationships?

It gives us hope! No matter what we do or fail to do, the promise has already been kept, and for us! That hope might give lesser people a reason to sit back and take it easy. But not Detectives of Divinity.  Because we know that all our blessings are given to us to be shared. 

So we keep seeking the traces of God’s work among us,  and whenwe find a clue we lift it up like the woman who found the lost coin, and we shout, “Lookie here! Here it is!”

What are you finding?  Where is God at work, in your past and especially in your present? How are you being blessed?     Write me!  Peace. Pat


  1. I have detected several things this week that give me hope.

  2. For me the empty tomb is the hope of the Resurrection! And as I looked around the Church on Easter Sunday, I wondered about all those people that somewhere in their past, in family tradition or otherwise learned that attending Easter Services was important-(and sometimes Christmas if the weather was okay!) Where are they the rest of the year – and where do they ground their hope! My prayer this Easter season is for them – that they hope in the glory of the Lord all year long!
