Hello Brave Hearts,
Is it a Happy Easter After All?I don't know what Easter has meant to you in the past, or how you have chosen to observe or celebrate - but this one is... different, am I right?!
I've been pondering what the heck Easter is supposed to mean when we're in this odd historical and personally turbulent moment: quarantine life and front-lines service due to the global pandemic of the virus, COVID-19. In general, according to the Christian wisdom tradition, Easter has meant many things including life triumphing over death, release, restoration, victory and a profound shift in how things used to be.
But, we're still "stuck" in the middle of this pandemic, things are still fearful, things are not easy and answers are still not readily apparent. How does a community with the tag-line, "doubters + disciples together" approach Easter during quarantine?

Breath PrayerThe following breath prayer can be used to honor Easter's reality in your world, even as we live amidst a Global Pandemic. It may help you to let go of attachments, compulsions and addictions and wake up to love. If God is difficult language for you, perhaps substitute, "from Love."
Pray the words as many times as is helpful, and then settle in to listen to your breath as a means to listen to God's response back to you:
Inhale: Nothing can separate me,
Exhale: from the love of God.
1. I am thankful for my mind and its ability to help me make wise decisions
2. I will choose to exercise my brain on something other than COVID (a book, a hobby, a conversation, etc...)
3. I can use resources to help me sort through the thoughts I am having
1. I am loved at my core, from start to finish, top to bottom
2. I can take the time I need to process and identify the emotions I am feeling
3. I sit with complex emotions and welcome them as friends, but not invite them to rule the roost
1. I can exercise and stretch my body
2. I can take care of someone I love: a family member, neighbor, friend or co-worker
3. I can connect with and listen to my breath and my heart beat as the baseline for my presence
1. I can practice trust when I am afraid
2. I can utilize music to give voice to my unidentified experience
3. I lean into the practices of gratitude and rest when I am overwhelmed
