Easter People: Stretched

Easter stretches the limits of our understanding. The resurrection defied natural law and it doesn't make sense to us. It takes our concept of God beyond anything we can relate to in terms of how we approach love, forgiveness and judgement. And even as it stretches our comprehension, so it must stretch our response.

We respond by loving more deeply, forgiving more freely, and seeking to bring harmony into our relationships.
We respond by reaching out to a hurting world, by sharing hope and seeking justice.

Easter forces us to redefine our limits. How far as Easter stretched you?

  1. Oh, this Easter - the first Lent I really leaned into, full of growth, and Easter day - brilliant - then a darkness - and a wondering how great darkness can come after such a great light - then studying Elijah and how his darkness after his great victory over the 400 prophets of Baal mirrored mine - or mine his. And now celebrating the 40 days post Easter - it's stretched me - so I'm stretching it. :) I hearted this – I really did. God bless and keep you and all of yours this day. God bless.
