The Joy of Easter

  PENTECOST Creator Spirit and Giver of life, make the dry, bleached bones of our lives live and breathe and grow again as you did of old. Pour out your Spirit upon the whole creation. Come in rushing wind and flashing fire to turn the sin and sorrow within us into faith, power, and delight. Amen.   Dear sisters in Christ Jesus.  Blessed and Holy Easter be with you now and always. We are in the midst of Holy Week and Palm Sunday has just concluded so we are in that seemingly liminal time of just waiting.  Not so? ...

Lent … Taking time for ourselves is important.  Taking time for others is important.
