  • Closer to the sky, closer to God

    One of the most neglected symbols of the church is the empty tomb.
    With the launch sequence of Christmas already counting down, we are familiarized again with the symbols of: the manger, the shepherds, the wise men, the angels, etc. Then there’s the reason Jesus Christ came into this world: the cross.
    Where would we be without the empty tomb? It is our symbol of victory. I Corinthians 15:16 reminds us: “If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins (KJV).”
