So it’s Easter Sunday morning here and I’m at home with Laura. Both of us are sick which means that we can’t be at church celebrating Easter with everybody else. It feels a bit wierd – Easter should be about celebration and the new community and life – but while intellectually I assert that, my body is not present at the celebration and moreover it feels shattered.
And I was meant to be doing the children’s talk today. “The Colours of Easter” using heaps of different coloured jelly beans to talk about all the different aspects (facets, Steve?) of Easter. Kim, however, has volunteered to do it so it should be good.
So today we look forward to new life – amen to that. We could use a little right about now.
