That is the essence of what we celebrate this evening a tomb that is empty!
Jesus has been raised by, transformed and now reigns as the Risen Christ!
Where he has gone we hope to follow.

or are we mere tourists, spectators watching the events unfold

Just because we are here in church is not enough

to the empty tomb means to allow ourselves
to honestly acknowledge our sins, our pain, our struggles and doubts.
