“The first Easter didn’t happen at a church. It happened outside of an empty tomb, while all the disciples were sequestered in a home, grief-stricken and wondering what was going on. So, we’re all going to be keeping things pretty Biblical this Easter.” Rev. Dr Emily C. Heath (Instagram 2020)
With the spread of the COVID 19 virus we have had reason to experience Lent and Easter in a slightly rawer less sure way this year. After two thousand years plus we had pretty much decided what Easter meant and although I have always found the ritual deeply moving and challenging this year feels like Easter is happening all around us, within us, and between us in an edgy less controllable way.
