Easter Saturday

Easter Saturday – or Holy Saturday – is the day when God was silent. In his book, God on Mute, Pete Greig writes:

"No one really talks about Holy Saturday, yet if we stop and think about it, it's where most of us live our lives. Holy Saturday is the no man's land between questions and answers, prayers uttered and miracles to come. It's where we wait – with a peculiar mixture of faith and despair – whenever God is silent or life doesn't make sense."
