Like It Or Not
At Easter services today, the Minister said something that really stuck with me. Whether you like it or not, Spring is here - a resurrection of sorts has begun. After the long dark winter, the Earth has come back. Many UUs cringe at the word resurrection. It is such a weighted term, with deep meanings, that we don't think of how it can apply to our lives. Sure, I don't believe in the resurrection of Christ. But all I have to do is look outside and see that a resurrection is happening all around me. The world is waking up after a long rest. It is hard not to feel the joy in the brightening of the world. I would say to my fellow non-Christians, go with it. Celebrate this reawakening. Resurrections come in many forms and honoring the one that speaks to you is one of life's great gifts.
