We've seen a lot of unbelievable things on our Lenten Road Trip, but none are so amazing as the empty tomb. In fact, can it be believed? Isn't something like this too good to be true? Surely Mark was embellishing, or writing a legend, or speaking metaphorically... this can't be true, can it? This is the challenge of Easter. When we confront the truth of the resurrection, we realize that though our road trip is at an end, and though Mark's gospel is at an end, our lives are just beginning!
