Thoughts of Easter
A pure white bunny
Shiny new shoes
Eggs in baskets, or hidden outside.
Worshippers filling the church
Spilling over into empty spaces.
Mixed with the scent of lilies.
Hearts filled with prayerful gladness
And songs of the season.
Celebrating the risen Jesus.

This year, we are creating new Easter traditions.
Though the church door is locked,
We celebrate outside or online.
We share food with friends and neighbors
While social distancing.
Our gatherings at home may be small,
But our church family fills our hearts to overflowing.
A community of believers
Praying around a firepit
In the dark.
Taking communion outside
Keeping music alive
Through the virtual choir.
A hand crafted cross at St George’s door,
Adorned with flowers we offer in celebration
On Easter Sunday.
