Christus Insurrexit

“There is no rest that
can feign innocence – every
pause a cause
for alarm.”
 
And from the above,
Love looks upon
us crucifying ourselves
in this refusal to breathe; and
beckons us to recall that ours
is to ponder verbs
in the way of
peace.
 
Not so very far
from here rivers of
beauty flow, yet I often
pass them by – but yesterday
a child leapt into my arms and
we became a compass
oriented by joy and
laughter and play:
insurrection.

    “This refusal to breathe” — such a fine line, that strikes at the heart of so many problems. Yesterday, the most popular Houston radio talk show host declared his five hours on the air a politics-free zone, and invited listeners to call in and talk about what had been good in their past week. It was so refreshing.

    He went on to advise taking the Easter weekend as an opportunity to breathe: to think only of family and friends, the blessings of life the beauty of spring. As he put it, even a two-year old can hold its breath for only so long. The blue-faced among us need to take in some oxygen: physically and otherwise.

    Happy Easter, Allen!

      Happy Easter to you too Linda! What a great idea, to talk about what is working well. At the last few synod assemblies, when there has been a break in the action, our Bishop has opened the mike to folk to talk about what gives them joy in the ministry of their churches etc. It completely re-orients the community. We need more of this!

    Pondering verbs in the way of peace seems a most refreshing way to spend an Easter weekend. An insurrection, indeed.
