Hallelujah, Christ is risen!

Easter invites us to expand our imagination. 

Our celebration of the resurrection enlivens our hope, as we celebrate life transformed from death. When it comes to the fate of our planet, it can be easy to fall into despair. 

An Easter practice might then be to ask ourselves, inspired by a question posed by marine biologist Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, “What if we got this right?” What if we got right our ideas and work about how to care for creation correct? What might our world look like? Can we allow ourselves to be moved from a place of possibility, trusting in God’s grace? 

This Easter Season, let us cultivate an Easter imagination – one that sees from the lens of hope instead of despair – that we might help bring resurrection joy to all beings on God’s planet. 

Have a Blessed Easter!
