We have spent weeks doing Lent. Is it possible that we can spend even one week doing Easter? Can we remember that there is such a thing as the season of Easter, the Great Fifty Days that lead us all the way to Pentecost?
I’m going to try to focus on E-A-S-T-E-R, in various ways for as much of this season as I can effectively. Christians are supposed to be an Easter people—yet we tend to circle back around to our unending Lent-like lives: the failures, bad habits, wounds, trials, sins, weaknesses, and on and on.
So, I begin our Easter Season with these questions. Would love to hear from you!
- What does being an Easter people, or person, mean to you?
- What aspects of the Easter event—the Resurrection—are most difficult for you to hold in your heart consistently?
- What aspects of the Easter event have entered your life and thoughts and dreams on a much more regular basis?
