Sometimes we forget that Easter is about celebrating a resurrected body. When the women came to Jesus’ tomb to care for his corpse, a young man said to them, “… you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here” (Mark 16:6). In 1867 the poet Walt Whitman proclaimed, and in 1980 characters from the movie Fame echoed: “I sing the body electric …”. This season, we sing the body resurrected. We sing the many ways our various, diverse, magnificent bodies are restored to life.
