Easter cross

Our day of resurrection joy beckons us…
To rest from our labors, and that which makes us weary,
To enjoy the gift and grace of transformation,
To seize opportunities around us to celebrate beginnings,
To unbind the fears that grip us,
To rattle the world with radical love,
To radiate light to places inclined toward shadows,
To expunge the hurts that have collected in our crevices,
To create spaces of hospitality and welcome,
To tremble with the rhythm of creation,
To invest in the goodness of all God’s people,
To orient our hearts fully on Jesus,
To nest in the wonder of all that is holy.

Our day of resurrection joy blesses us on journeys toward wholeness and becoming. Alleluia!
