You that have kept the fast, and you that have not, rejoice today for the Table is richly laden!
Feast royally on it; the calf is a fatted one.
Let no one go away hungry. Partake, all, of the cup of faith.
Enjoy all the riches of His goodness!
Let no one grieve at his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed.
Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again;
for forgiveness has risen from the grave.
Let no one fear death, for the Death of our Savior has set us free.
He has destroyed it by enduring it.
—St. John Chrysostom’s Easter Sermon

For a decidedly inferior Easter sermon (read: one preached by me instead of the Golden Mouth), come visit Artisan Church tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. or 5:00 p.m. We're kicking off our Failed Christians series, which I'm tremendously excited about.
