Sunrise and astonishment

But it does not end there, not with pain and absence and hard work. It ends gloriously – with a sunrise and astonishment and the promise that however dark things look, God can bring out the totally unexpected – that he can find the right work, the right person, the unexpected way. The women went to offer the last service to a beloved dead teacher. They found angels, and fear, and excitement and an astonishing realisation that the end was, in fact, just the very beginning. Alleluia is back – Jesus is with his people, and everything we never expect might happen.
