At the Kansas District LWML convention in Salina one spring, we celebrated Easter all weekend. He is risen! and He is risen indeed! rang out with regularity.
During one of the weekend’s sermons, a pastor was talking about Paul’s letters to various congregations, encouraging them, chiding them, and giving thanks for them. I was sitting beside a woman who was studying intently her convention notes. “And to think,” the pastor said forcefully, “Paul writes most of these letters when he’s in prison!”
“He is risen indeed!” shouted the woman beside me.
