I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility.
Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time.
*Greek (Greek: λειτουργία), leitourgia, which literally means "work of the people" is a literal translation of the two words "litos ergos" or "public service".
The symbolic language of the crucifixion is the death of the old paradigm; resurrection is a leap into a whole new way of thinking.
Lent was “easier” to enter as I am connected to the resounding darkness that has swept the nation since the election and more specifically Inauguration Day. It’s the resurrection that feels difficult. I don’t know how my colleagues who serve in parishes are doing it. And yet, the liturgical calendar will still proceed whether we are personally ready for it or not. To be honest, I feel guilty for celebrating the holiday when so many folks are pressed harder and farther to the margins this year. I continue to ask myself, "Where is the resurrection for folks who are struggling?" Perhaps that question will continue to be with me until I take my last breath.
