Alleluia





Happy, joyous, freeing Easter to one and all. Alleluia, He is Risen! The Lord is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!

Personally, I'm not feeling much sense of resurrection. Actually, I am in the very pit of depression. Today, I slept much of the day, just a sign as to how little energy I'm feeling. And yet, I know that I'll make it, this will pass, Christ is risen for us continually.

Here is a prayer from the Human Rights Campaign's website, "Out in Scripture"


Great Resurrecting God,
may we see in the real lives
of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people
the truth of your resurrection power and possibility.
May we roll back every stone
that continues to entomb any part of your creation.
May we invite you to re-create each one of us
until resurrection and liberation prevail for all. Amen.

Holy Saturday is a day of utter stillness, I think. One way of God being with us has ended; the new way has not yet appeared. But the quiet of the tomb, as I have said elsewhere, is not the end of the story.

Toaster:

Your position reminds me so strongly of my Easter a year ago. If I am even close, remember that next year it will be different.

As one who celebrates the season and not just the day, I say to you "Happy Easter!"

"This joyful Eastertide away with sin and sorrow!
My love, the crucified, has sprung to life this morrow..."

Enough depression. Get some happy and get on with it already.

LIFE is too short to be miserable and you my dear have exhausted me with your misery...

Get Happy Already!!
Easter is supposed to be a time to rejoice and celebrate the resurrection of Christ, not to hang on the cross with him.

For God's sakes...

My Easter homily came slow this year as I continue my post-operative recovery. I'll publish it for you anyway. I'd also like your thoughts on my recent posting. Please know I deeply value you and journey with you.
