As the Light of Christ illumines the darkness, we tell the stories of God’s saving works throughout time and worship Jesus who conquers death to raise us to new life. How strange it will be not to baptize or confirm anyone at this year’s Easter Vigil, but we know God is at work among us, alive and active today as he was in the days of Abraham, Moses, and all our ancestors in faith.
