Pastor’s Pondering 04/15/2020

Our prayer-

The thing our faith hopes of our character-

Is that Easter can prove to be with us

As Christmas did at Whoville.

We yearn to prove

That Easter will be Easter,

Perhaps version 2.0,

Without the lilies,

Without the sunrise over the lake,

Without the trumpet,

Without the choir-

More like, the one woman

Crying in the garden,

Asking the gardener where he has

Moved the body-

Like that, and he answers back

Simply with our name.

THEN, we shout Alleluia!

And not even quarantine

Can contain the joy,

No more than a tomb

Could contain his body.
