Out of the Jurisdiction: Easter



Old Mission Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, California, October 2012 (iPad photograph)

From the plaque in the foreground:  While it was still dark, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb and saw the stone had been moved from the entrance.  Mary stood weeping and saw Jesus standing there.  Though she did not know it was Jesus, Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping, for whom are you looking?"  Supposing him to be the gardener, she said, "Please, if you are the one who carried him away, tell me where you have laid him and I will take him."  Jesus said, "Mary!"  She turned and exclaimed "Teacher!"  Jesus said, "Go to my brothers and sisters and tell them I am ascending to my Father."

Today I am in Amsterdam, so I am not likely to be looking at other blogs or responding to comments on this one.  But, I have posts to show you while I am away.  See you in a week.
