A Meditation for You
Hallelujah! The Lord is Risen!

Let us spend this season aware. Aware of the Risen Lord. Share with us your photographs this month, your glimpses of the Risen Lord!
God of new life,
In these Easter days the wonder of the Risen Christ is close.
Walking in the budding woods, resurrection is everywhere,
the heart-song of the wild daffodil’s golden center,
the magnolia’s blushed cup, the downy new leaf and the rippling brook.
It is clear that life-death-life is the pattern at the center of the universe—
renewal, transformation, regeneration, healing.
May we have the courage to keep living toward resurrection’s new bloom.
The Lord is Risen, Indeed! Hallelujah!
