The Rev. Dr. Luke A. Powery, Dean, Duke University Chapel
Easter Sunday is the principal feast of the liturgical year-the day Christians celebrate Jesus' resurrection from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. The resurrection of Christ has been a focal point of Christian confession since the early church; Christians have understood the resurrection to be the central witness of God's radical action in human history. Jesus, God incarnate, went to the depths of the earth and overcame the power of death that we might have life eternal. Masking in Duke Chapel is optional for those who are fully vaccinated.
