My SIL ran across a comment which is very similar to others I have seen the past week: “Happy Good Friday, everyone! He Is Risen!”
When she commented that Easter wasn’t “til Sunday”, she was rebuked with, “No, He is risen all the time. That’s why we say “is” and not “has”. He conquered death and that’s forever and I am so grateful for that!”
I recommended she either not respond or just say something like “there’s no Easter without a Good Friday” or “we like to celebrate ALL of Christ’s life, not just the parts that make us feel good.” Obviously we are all grateful that Christ rose, but it seems we at least owe it to Him to remember His Passion as well.
Thoughts? Anyone else see a lot of this, this year?
