In keeping with a Duke tradition and the much older, richer tradition of the church, I had the chance to celebrate the good news of Jesus’ resurrection in the early morning at Duke Gardens again this year. That first Easter morning happened before the sun was up, and it makes sense that we would gather in the same way even now to hear that strange proclamation: He is not here! Christ is risen! Allelulia!
