God had “created the heavens and the earth” but they were as yet empty. What a tremendous thought. Sometime you should take a preschooler to a zoo — just to re-experience the wonder. Can you imagine the fun God must have had putting the teeth and tail on a beaver? Or the neck on a giraffe? The emptiness of God’s creation was really just room for His extravagance.
It is almost Easter, so The Church Herald and Holiness Banner is “Celebrating Emptiness.” As Editor Mark Avery wrote in this month’s editorial, “While the empty grave was a shock to believers on the first Easter, Christians have celebrated its emptiness since.”
Come along with us as we take joy in the Resurrection of our Lord.
