Today is Easter, however churches are closed. It will be weird for a large population of the planet, but staying home can be redeeming. As the Queen has said, Easter isn’t cancelled, it’s needed more than ever. Maybe Easter this year can be a time of looking a new at our lives and determining what we want to keep and what to strip out.
For those of us not able to go to church today, not able to see our families today, who are ‘stuck’ at home, who are ‘forced’ to spend time with our nearest and dearest. Perhaps we should remember the thousands globally who can’t. Who can’t because they are working another gruelling shift on the frontline, or isolating, or in a hospital bed.
And while this article is from an American perspective and not a typical Easter message. I sense it is very appropriate for today. It’s given me lots to think about, perhaps it will do the same for you.
Today is Easter, however churches are closed. However, it is also is an opportunity to ‘Marie Kondo our lives’. We can choose what to clean out of our lives; we don’t have to go back to the way things were. Perhaps this is one mighty (and holy) reset.
The choice is up to us.
