Where am I called to Resurrection in the practical circumstances in my life during this our second Easter in pandemic times? Reaching out to extended family as a favorite cousin, age 70, ravaged by a fast moving aggressive cancer; a listening presence to someone in the deep hole of depression moving from despair to gradual movements into light; family sharings of Easter’s past…..touching in with other spiritual directors accompanying those bruise by covid 19; savoring the simple moments of joy/delight when actually getting to see your doctor face to face, behind a mask, of course touching into over looked signs of care.
Though this wasn’t one of the proposed scriptures this week it just popped Friday lingering to this moment:
Welcome one another, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. Rom 15:3 No fanfare, just a simple touching into my spirit.
I now join the live streaming of Donald’s funeral, a much loved cousin.
