Happy Easter Weekend! I’m looking forward to my church’s Easter Vigil this evening. If you’ve never gone to one, I encourage you to find your nearest liturgical church (Lutheran, Episcopalian, Catholic, etc.) and go! It’s my favorite service of the year, as it moves through the despair of suffering and death to uncompromised joy by the end of the service. The Lenten season is all about looking our brokenness square in the face and learning how to forgive, repent, and find contentment in its midst. I believe that facing the hard truths of reality and moving forward with a heart of hope and compassion is one of the most important – and perhaps most difficult – steps we take in life. And now that we’ve seen despair, and now that we know “it is finished” (in the long run) in the sacrifice of Christ, we have cause for hope. We continue the year with new understanding, with a sympathetic spirit, with love to give.
I went to church on Easter too, and the service renewed my desire to find a church to attend regularly. I miss the sacred space.
