Good one, Jesus! Best April fools’ joke ever. Mary thought you were dead and she was looking for your body. Instead, you appeared to her and she thought you were the gardener! What? The gardener?! It wasn’t until you called her name that she saw you, really saw you. And heard you, really heard you. And then she knew. You weren’t the gardener. You were her Master! And you weren’t dead. You were very much alive, risen from the dead and standing before her with love in your voice and a twinkle in your eye. This Resurrection Sunday, may we see you, may we hear you and may we be once again surprised by the deeply good news that in all our places of pain and death, you are there—sometimes hidden—but always there—bringing resurrection life.
