Easter comes this year with its call of springtime (hear in the northern hemisphere), new hope, new life, starting over, rebirth and renewal fast on the heels of the anniversary of the diabolical fiasco that is the War in Iraq. So many dead, so many lives torn apart, so many and so much in need of healing and renewal.
The Church of the Larger Fellowship’s March edition of QUEST features two fabulous pieces on Easter. One is called “Easter is Breaking” a poem by Kathleen Rolenz, Co-Minister of the West Shore UU Church in Rocky River, OH. You can listen to it here or read it at the QUEST website. The other is a reflection/homily titled “We Who Believe” by Alicia Roxanne Forde, Minister of the Namaqua UU Congregatin in Loveland, CO. Available in audio here and in text at QUEST website.
