Like much of the rest of the world, I watched yesterday as flames engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral. I was saddened to see a building of such history and beauty nearly destroyed. Even more, I experienced my heart breaking as I saw a place that has shaped the faith of so many go up in flames. Notre Dame’s flames are not the final word. France already has declared it will be rebuilt. However flames don’t just threaten to destroy buildings. They are also very personal. But as you are reminded during this Holy Week, these flames are not the final word for you. They are never the final word. Resurrection is real. Resurrection is coming. And you can bet your life on it.
