“...resurrection is celebrated not as a moment "after" suffering and separate from it, but as a mystery born in and of suffering." (from
This is the Night: Suffering, Salvation and the Liturgies of Holy Week, James W. Farwell, p. 7).
How are we experiencing (seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, smelling, witnessing) signs of resurrection and new life this Holy Week, in and amidst the suffering of our current world crisis?
We are inviting every member of St. Mark’s (young, and old, and in between) to join us in looking for--and sharing--signs of resurrection for the next 12 days--beginning TODAY and continuing through Easter Sunday.
Where are you creating and discovering beauty, love, and new life? At your home altars, in your home liturgies, on your walks, in your yard, in your neighborhood, in your home? Take pictures! Draw pictures! Write about it! Let's share all the ways we're discovering resurrection in new and unexpected ways as we prepare for and celebrate Holy Week at Home this year.
Please email your daily photos and other submissions, including original art work, poetry, or SHORT (a couple sentences or paragraphs) written reflections, re:"Reflection Resurrection"
to this email address
Please note: We plan to share all submissions publicly, via a facebook photo album and a shared google doc, as well as by other methods in the future. Please only submit images and reflections that you are willing for St. Mark's to share publicly.
