Again & Again, The Sun Rises
According to Mark, on the first day of the week, the women rise with the
sun and buy spices to anoint Jesus’ body. They are shocked to find the
tomb empty, and leave in fear and terror. Mark’s resurrection story is less
triumphant than the other Gospel testimonies (as scholars believe the
remainder of Mark’s gospel was a later addition). In Mark’s version, we are
reminded that Easter comes to us, again and again, even if we don’t know
what to make of God’s resurrection ways. Again and again, the sun rises.
And some days, that is enough.
