He has risen: He has risen indeed

It's a beautiful, sunny Easter Day; unfortunately it's also 22 degrees outside. I just heard a weather forecaster the other day say that it will be colder on Easter than it was on Christmas Day. That's just not right.

We are getting ready to drive down to my parent's church, about an hour away, for service. Then we are going to a brunch at the Chianti Grill with them and my sister's family.

Hope you all have a blessed day with family and loved ones.

British literary critic C.S. Lewis has written in his book Mere Christianity:
A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic--on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg--or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that [alternative] open to us
