Easter is coming!

20120408-030244.jpg

How long have we waited? 40 days, 40 years… the importance of this wait begins to fade. Distracted – we lean toward the lures of this world. Then in our exhaustion we remember – there is more to living than fear of danger, the hoarding of possessions and isolation.

In the still quiet of Holy Saturday surrounded by darkness, we gather. With the host of all who came before us, we await the coming of light and life. Through the practice of a liturgy passed to us from the early moments of our faith, we gather because we know the importance of waiting. We know that waiting does not mean passive living. No, our wait is filled with acts of mercy and compassionate work.

In the dark we join together because we know there is more and our hearts long for renewal. In the songs of Alleluia we remember – Easter is coming.

    Hi Carrie,
    I tried to reach you through some email addresses I found. Remember me? Gina Asher from the GTU. We went to Reno together; I worked as your attendant. I’d love to reconnect with you. I’m now a physical therapist, married, and living in Bethel Alaska.
