Two Easter Reflections from the Green Team
From Marylyn Pauley:
“...From the Outer Hebrides... the tradition there holds that on
Easter morning, the sun dances in celebration of the resurrection of Christ.
In an account recorded by Alexander Carmichael in the 19th Century, found
in his Carmina Gadelica, a woman tells of climbing the highest hill on Easter
morn and seeing the sun dancing in delight: “The glorious gold-bright sun
was rising on the crests of the great hills, and it was changing color—green,
purple, red, blood-red, intense white, and gold-white, like the glory of the
God of the elements to the children of men. It was dancing up and down in
exultation at the joyous resurrection of the beloved Savior of victory.”
Fanciful though this may seem, the story gives us a sense of the Celtic
awareness of creation and resurrection being held together in Christ...”

From Linda Bergerson:
Christians are Easter people and we remember that this week. We are also people who respect the earth and we can't help but watch and appreciate the valley turning green and forgotten bulbs sprouting in the bare earth. Let us love the earth and keep it green.
