The Empty Tomb
As a child,
I remember Easter as a time that I got new clothes.
Everyone got new clothes.
And we all went to church.
Even my dad went to church on Easter.
That's a nice metaphor.
For the New Person.
I always thought the empty tomb,
was a stronger image than the cross.
Like Bill Hicks said,
wearing the cross around your neck,
to honor Christ,
is a little like wearing a carbine on your lapel
to honor JFK.
Jesus is probably up there right now saying,
"I don't know Dad,
I'm not going down there quite yet,
They are still wearing those crosses".
"Folks: It's time to evolve ideas. You know, evolution didn't end with us growing thumbs. You do know that, right? Didn't end there. We're at the point, now, where we're going to have to evolve ideas. The reason the world is so fv(ked up is we're undergoing evolution. And the reason our institutions, our traditional religions, are all crumbling, is because ... they're no longer relevant. They're no longer relevant. So it's time for us to create a new philosophy and perhaps even a new religion, you see. And that's OK 'cause that's our right, 'cause we are free children of God with minds who can imagine anything, and that's kind of our role." Bill Hicks
Maybe we should focus less on the cross,
and more on the empty tomb.
And our new clothes.
