As Christians, we celebrate Easter as God’s triumph over death. The earth sings out, “Alleluia, Alleluia Christ is risen!” With its roots in Hebrew, alleluia means “Praise the Lord.” After a season of repentance and turning our hearts back to God, we hope in the risen Christ. Christ, the Sacrificial Lamb, gave up his life for us. These Greek letters, Alpha and Omega, signify that God is the beginning and the end. The Easter Lily represents a trumpet’s proclamation of the Good News of the Resurrection. From death to life, Christ reigns.
